There’s a wise Chinese that goes, “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 Chinese Baby Name methodology
Parents/Grandparents bazi/zodiac sign are irrelevant to auspicious baby naming, reasons are:
Why is it important to start early with an auspicious Chinese name
First in the study of birth 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 young, grandparents, relatives, parents and friends address them by their “Chinese name” so it carries the “invisible” help. Lastly the more important reason is to counter the imbalance of birth’s configuration five element disharmony.
Auspicious Chinese Name to match Zodiac Year or Surname is Wrong
If you “google” for auspicious Chinese name, there are sites that provide a list of auspicious Chinese character for FREE to suit your child’s Zodiac Sign. This is absolutely wrong! There are about 130 million born every year and to assume all these babies shared the same “name-formula” is a total disaster!
Let’s use a “real case study” of my client’s baby boy born in June, 2013 Zodiac sign-Snake. According to some misguided generalisation, to quote “snake babies” are carnivores, make their homes in holes, grass, therefore their Chinese names should contain characters related to “heart”, “forests” “grass” e.g. 木, 草, 森, 笔, 栋 , 集, 杰 茹 恧 雅 雁 农 茵 etc
My client’s Day Master is 丙 火（Bing Fire）born in 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 issues etc. His lucky break only after Year 2054 i.e. water (highlighted in blue) and metal So if we follow the above generalisation of “wood” 木, 草, 森 which produces even more “fire” cause more harm than good to the child.
Don’t risk your Child’s fate for 80 years!
Some uses the Year Zodiac trilogy combo 三合/ 三会/ 六合 to calculate auspicious Chinese Name in hope for 贵人 benefactor luck without interpreting the child’s bazi lucky elements is also wrong. Same example the name contain goat 未 or horse 午 which are supposedly “benefactors” with snake BUT it forms 巳午未三会火 huge “fire element” which is the child’s bazi MOST UNLUCKY ELEMENT.
天格 the addition of one stroke is incorrect
Traditional Name Reading followed 日本熊崎氏姓名學 Japan. Japanese names are 4 characters. So in order to work around the problem with a “3-character” chinese name, traditionalists add 1 extra stroke to surname forming 天格. Based on this formula if we applied the same principle on a “2-character” Chinese name we are going to have problem creating a “fixed” 2-stroke inauspicious 外格数 which means 两仪之数，混沌未开，进退保守，志望难达 （凶数）Bad
There are so many celebrities, rich man such as 成龙,马云, 鲁迅, 赵薇, 伍百, 岳飞 with 2 character name. How could all these famous names “外格” human relationship be bad?Therefore Feng Shui Master Pte Ltd does not adopt this “add-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, the 2nd character follow after the surname must add up to be an auspcious number. (b) Bazi favourable element limit the number of Chinese which is either 金 metal or 水 water or 木 wood or 火 fire or 土 earth (c) The 81-stroke 八十一画 数灵动 formula restrict certain numbers e.g. from 20 to 30 only 21 wood, 23 fire , 24 fire , 25 earth, 29 water are auspicious. Number 20, 22, 26, 27, 28 & 30 are inauspicious. Not only the “number”, the “element” also must be favourable for the child. (d) Harmony of the 5 elements 三才 (e) Chinese character eunication 字音五行 itself must suit child’s bazi lucky element (f) Fixed Middle Name by our ancestors 族谱 clan history OR 家谱
