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 approach
Your Chinese surname also limit the number of Chinese character
Since baby naming formula is derived from “Chinese surname”, the number of Chinese characters provided for middle or last name builds 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 more choices and flexibility.
Parents/Grandparents bazi/zodiac sign are irrelevant to Baby auspicious Chinese naming
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 they are 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. During the early age your kid will need extra help in health and other aspects therefore laying a stronger foundation for their future. A deep understanding of your child’s Bazi favourable and unfavourable elements 八字 喜忌用神 is important to counter OR dilute the imbalance of the 5 elements harmony.
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 e.g. Year of Rooster or Year of the Horse OR match the Chinese surname “character”. This is wrong! Do you know that every year there are about 130 million born into this world and to presume all these babies shared the same “formula” i.e. favourable element is a total disaster! Some even get creative to associate certain Zodiac sign to suit certain surnames.
Talk is cheap. Let’s use a “real case study” of my client’s baby boy born in June, 2013 Year of the Snake. According to some misguided generalisation to quote “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
First examine the child’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 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 of “wood” 木, 草, 森 being suitable, it causes more harm than good.
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 illustration if the name contain goat 未 or horse 午 which are supposedly “benefactors” with snake because it forms 巳午未三会火 huge “fire element” BUT the child’s bazi most unlucky element is fire.
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 a “3-character” chinese name, traditionalists add 1 extra stroke to surname forming 天格 making it a 4 character name. Now if we applied the same principle on a “2-character” name we are going to have problem e.g. Zhang Jie a Chinese pop singer; forcefully adding 1 stroke to fill “in the blank” we created an inauspicious 外格数 number of “2” :
IF we follow this principle then all “2-character Chinese name” 外格 is definitely bad, which make no sense. There are so many celebrities, rich man like 成龙,马云, 鲁迅, 赵薇, 伍百, 岳飞 with 2 character name. How could all these famous names be bad? Based on 姓名学八十一灵动数之吉凶 Chinese Name study “外格” represent 人际关系 relationships/networking help from parents, benefactors so does this “added one” work? Therefore Feng Shui Master Pte Ltd does not adopt this “add-one-stroke” model.
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 lucky elements 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 as auspicious 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) The element chosen must flow in harmony 三才 (5 element conformity)
(e) The 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
