Feng Shui Master Auspicious Chinese Name 姓名学 – an updated difference

The objective for an auspicious Chinese name is to supplement your child’s birth profile (bazi) 5 element-imbalance at an early stage. It is not based on child’s Chinese zodiac animal. To quote a Chinese wise saying “赐子千金,不如教子一艺;教子一艺,不如赐子好名” (instead of giving gold to your child, teach him a skill;  Instead of teaching him a skill, bestow a good name”.

Feng Shui Master Methodology

  • Manually analyse your child’s date of birth (bazi) 八字组合分析.  This is to determine your child’s most favourable element/s 八字体 格局用神 which is the vital key to baby-Chinese name selection.
  • Find the best possible name structure computation i.e. Surname + middle character + last character 三才配合:人格, 外格, 总格 and 地格. Please note that unlike conventional practice, FSM DO NOT add 1 stroke to form  天格 explanation below.
  • Feng Shui Master will provide the maximum possible number of Chinese characters fulfilling these criteria a. Child’s bazi lucky elements 八字用神 b. character meanings 名字寓意c. 5-element Chinese character enunciation 字音五行 (音调音韵) *d.  auspicious stroke-computation 数理吉凶 and (e) structural harmony 三才配合.
  • It is difficult to quantify the number of chinese character provided because it is limited by the number of stroke of surname and the 4 key criteria stated.
  • If happened that the quantity of characters is more than 50, i would pick and highlight some characters. As for the remaining characters not highlighted,  one can easily copy & paste using google search to find out the individual character meaning.
  • The list of Chinese characters are “pre-filtered” to avoid any bad connotations or bazi conflict e.g. rat year should not have character with “午” e.g. 许 忤 杵 仵 迕
  • Our baby naming service does not “add 1 stroke” to form 天格on top of the surname, see picture below.
  • Lastly if one insist on using 家谱 for family’s middle name, it may not be compatible with your child’s bazi lucky elements.

* Traditional Chinese stroke calculation is based on Kang Xi Dictionary whereas Simplified Chinese is not

Chinese Baby Name

Why it is important to start early with an auspicious Chinese name for baby

First based on bazi reading, a child have not entered his or her 10-Year Luck Pillar 十年大运. Secondly your baby Chinese name will frequently be address by grandparents, relatives and other elder, this carries the “invisible” help. Lastly the most important reason to counter any imbalance or disharmony or deficiency in your child birth’s profile.

Why add one stroke to form 天格 is INCORRECT

auspicious baby chinese nameMost baby Chinese name service in Singapore practice add 1 stroke to form 天格. The system i suspect originated from Japan 日本熊崎氏姓名學. How this comes about is because most Japanese names are 4-character name instead of 3.  So to apply on a 3-character Chinese name, most go around this problem creatively. They put “1” stroke (like “x” in math) on top of a surname to form 天格.

For 2-character Chinese names, another 1 stroke (like “y” in math) is added after the 2nd character to form 外格 see pic. Thus based on this formula, all 2 character Chinese name 外格 invariably is “2”. Two is bad on numerology table 数理吉凶.

2-凶数:  根基不固,摇摇欲坠,一盛一衰,劳而无功。容易损丁破财而病弱短寿,并且忧心劳神而徒劳无功。经常由于积劳成疾而致死。女性则多刑偶伤子而薄幸多灾。

How is it possible that all 2 character Chinese name 外格 are bad? Here are some successful 2-character Chinese name 马云, 林峰, 陶喆, 朱茵, 那英, 张宇, 鲁迅, 赵薇, 岳飞…

In conclusion, i do not adopt this “add-one-stroke” formula to the surname or last character.
