I am certain that the first thing that enters most of our minds on hearing the mention of Chinese is combat. No thanks to the numerous motion pictures from the Chinese film industry, kung fu has been made synonymous with China. Chinese male names, just like the martial art, are just lovely. Do you have any favorite Chinese male names in your head?
Chinese male names follow a certain trend that is common to Chinese culture. According to the traditions and customs of the Chinese people, male children mostly acquire family names, which come from ethnic groups. Children have names that follow their culture due to the availability of different cultures in the country.
Just like the years’ old Chinese heritage and cultures, even Chinese male names symbolize virtue, ancient treasures, and serenity. There’s extreme diversity in Chinese names due to the different dynasties, religions like Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism, and of course, Mandarin and Cantonese dialects.
Apparently, I have a few Chinese male names I happen to love. Actually, my likeness for these Chinese male names is from film characters. I have Chan and Xing as my preferred Chinese male names. Maybe you also have these choice Chinese male names or you are looking to name your kids with one. Truly, that will be a great idea. Chinese names make one of the most sought-after exotic names.
