Chinese names are usually to convey special meaning, with the given names often expressing the best of wishes on the new-born, like 福fú (happiness), 健jiàn (health), and 寿shòu (longevity). Some show the hope for virtue, like 忠zhōng (faithful), 义yì (righteous), 礼lǐ (courteous) and信xìn (reliable), while others simply imply the birthplace, birth time or natural phenomenon, like京jīng (Beijing), 晨chén (morning), 春chūn (spring) and雪xuě (snow).
