Congratulations for your first child! It important to start early and choose an auspicious Chinese name for your new born baby. There’s a wise Chinese saying, “Instead of giving your child gold, teach him a skill. Instead of teaching him a skill, bestow a good name upon your child “赐子千金，不如教子一艺。教子一艺，不如赐子好名.
Feng Shui Master Auspicious Baby Name approach
The Chinese surname also limit choices
Since baby naming derived from the “Chinese surname”, the number of Chinese characters provided for middle or last name is also build upon it. E.g. Chinese surname like 萧,谭, 罗 already started off with more than 19 stroke 画 so the middle name and last name choices are limited. On the other hand surname that are 8, 9, 10 stroke 八 九 十画 got lot more choices and flexibility.
Parents bazi are irrelevant to Baby auspicious Chinese name
Why is it important to start early with an auspicious Chinese name
In the study of birth (bazi) reading, a child may not have not enter into his or her 10-Year Luck Pillar 八字十年大运 during the infancy stage. Secondly when they are young, grandparents, relatives, parents and friends address them by their “Chinese name” so it carries the “invisible” help. That is the reason for adults to 改名the efficiency drop because chances are not many of your peers or friends will call you by the “chinese name”! Lastly the most obvious and the most important reason is to counter the imbalance of birth’s configuration five element disharmony. During the early age your kid will need extra help in health and other aspects so as to lay a strong foundation for their future. A deep understanding of your child’s Bazi favourable or unfavourable elements 八字 喜忌用神 is important to counter OR offset the imbalance of the 5 elements harmony.
Name generalisation Yearly Zodiac Sign is TOTALLY Wrong
If you surf the net you will notice that some auspicious baby name sites provides you with a list chinese characters that are based on your Child’s year of birth (Zodiac sign). This is 100% wrong! Every year there are about 130 million born into this world and to presume that all these babies shared the same favourable element is a total disaster! It is similar to the generalisation of annual almanac fortune forecast of the 12 chinese astrology animals.
Let’s use this illustration of my client’s baby boy born in 2013 Year of the Snake. He is born in June. According to some misguided traditional generalisation that “snake babies” are carnivores, make their homes in holes, grass, therefore their auspicious Chinese name should contain characters related to “heart”, “forests” “grass” like 木, 草, 森, 笔, 栋 , 集, 杰 茹 恧 雅 雁 农 茵 etc omg!
Don’t risk your Child’s fate for 80 years!
From the illustration above child’s Day Master is 丙 火（Bing Fire）profile born in hot summer with strong “fire roots” shown in red. His bazi sickness is excessive fire element causing health issues like short-sightedness, heart, blood problems, skin rashes and personality problems like impatient, bad temper etc. His lucky elements are “metal & water” element. Now look at the first 40 years of his life, the period is filled with fire, earth and wood. His lucky break only after Year 2054 i.e. water (highlighted in blue) and metal So if we follow the above generalisation 木, 草, 森 etc. most of the Chinese characters listed belongs to “wood” element therefore harmful for the child.
Some uses the Zodiac trilogy combo 三合/ 三会/ 六合 to calculate the Chinese Name in the hope for 贵人 benefactor luck without interpreting the child’s bazi lucky elements is also wrong. In the above illustration if the name contain goat 未 or horse 午 as “benefactors” which are supposedly compatible with snake then it forms 巳午未三会火 huge “fire element” which is detrimental to the child’s life.
天格 the addition of one stroke is incorrect
Notice that conventional Name Reading principle followed 日本熊崎氏姓名學 Japan. Japanese names are 4 characters so in order to work around the problem with 3-character chinese name, some traditionalists add 1 extra stroke to surname forming 天格. Now if we used the same principle on a 2-character name e.g. Zhang Jie a Chinese pop singer; adding 1 more stroke to fill in the blank we created a problem with 外格数 “2” which means:
In other words all 2-character Chinese name 外格 is definitely bad. There are so many celebrities, rich man like 成龙,马云, 鲁迅, 赵薇, 伍百, 岳飞 with 2 character name. Based on 姓名学八十一灵动数之吉凶 Chinese Name study “外格” mainly represent 人际关系 relationships/networking help from parents, benefactors so does this “added one” work? Thus Feng Shui Master Pte Ltd does not adopt this “added one stroke” to the surname.
Auspicious Naming making the best possible under constraints
Over the years sometime we have to work within constraints to get the best possible out of a given situation
(a) Surname Restrictions. E.g. Surname “王 4 stroke” and if the bazi requires “water element” the best possible auspicious number to form water is “29” thus the middle name have to be 25-stroke Chinese character which means the list of characters are limited
(b) The chinese character list is bound by child’s Birth profile 1 0r 2 of his lucky element from the 5-element chain 金 metal 水 water 木 wood 火 fire 土 earth
(c) Hinges on 81-stroke 八十一画 数灵动 formula only “SPECIFIED” numbers are auspicious e.g. from 20 to 30 only 21 wood, 23 fire , 24 fire , 25 earth, 29 water are auspicious. Not only the “number”, the “element” also must be favourable for the child.
(d) The element chosen must flow in harmony 三才 (5 element conformity)
(e) The Chinese character 字音五行 itself must suit child’s bazi lucky element
(f) Sometime Middle Name is already fixed by our ancestors 族谱 clan history OR 家谱
