What's in a Name? Part I
|Thanks to: un-herd music.|
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
--Matthew 5:5 (NKJV)
Korean names almost always have Chinese counterparts since much of Korean is Chinese. A lot goes into choosing a name because a good name means good luck and could determine compatibility with a future partner.
|Kim, meaning 'gold' (metal): family name. In Korean: 김.|
On, meaning 'warm'. In Korean: 온.
|Yoo, meaning 'soft'. In Korean: 유.|
Chinese name: 金溫柔.
Korean name: 김온유.
Romanized Korean: Kim On Yoo.
I guess it's a pretty good name, as far as names go. You'll see in my next post how my wife's name relates to mine and that we're compatible in the Asian sense. Of course, it is a made up name, so we had better be compatible :)
