Chinese name meanings (yes we can do these names too).

Chinese name meanings take on more importance in societies where the family and relationships to the community are more important than the individual, the family name is said first. Thus, these people are simply identifying what they were taught as a child prior to identifying who they are individually.

Whereas the Chinese would say the name Mao Zedona, when referring to the Chairman of the Communist Party of China, an Anglo would say the English translated name Zedong Mao.

Be mindful that many people of Asian decent have two names: their original name written with their script symbols and another name constructed out of the Roman alphabet for ease of use with others of different backgrounds.
