Congratulations to you as parents 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 that goes like this, “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.

The LIST of Chinese character for you to choose DEPENDS
The number of Chinese characters provided depends on your FIXED SURNAME, forming the structure of 三才五行and the “sum of auspicious strokes” see illustration above in orange circle. If the middle name must be a 1-stroke Chinese character (一 画/划字) then the list will only consist of 2 Chinese characters that are 1-stroke 一 & 乙 to choose from. As the number of Chinese stroke increases, the more choices you have. Obviously i will try my best to give you the most number of Chinese character to choose from but sometimes due to (a) your Child’s Lucky element suitability (b) number of stroke of your surname and (c) auspicious structure, it is impossible!
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 the year of 2013 which is the Year of the Snake. He is born in the month of June 2013. According to some misguided traditional generalisation that “snakes 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, 心, 碧, 青, 森，笔 草 策 茶 栋 筏 贵 集 杰 植 期 祁 棋 荃 茹 阮 棠 厦 雅 雁 茵 棹 茱 etc omg!
Don’t risk your Child’s fate for 80 years!
Using such generalisation put your child’s fate at risk for 80 years. The chinese characters listed belongs to either “wood” or “fire” element and this is harmful for the child. From the illustration above my client’s Day Master is 丙 火（Bing Fire）profile born in hot summer with strong “fire roots” shown in red. His ba zi 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 found in the year stem and time root. Now look at the first 40 years of his life, the period is filled with fire, earth and wood. He will only catch his lucky break after Year 2054 where the lucky elements are water (highlighted in blue) and metal comes into play. So choosing the child’s bazi “lucky element” as name becomes very important.
Some uses the trilogy combo 三合/ 三会局 of Chinese astrology signs to calculate the Chinese Name without interpreting the child’s bazi lucky elements is also wrong. In the above illustration if he uses goat 未 or horse 午 as “benefactors” which are supposedly compatible with snake then the transformation of 巳午未三会火 huge “fire element” is detrimental to the child’s life.
Why adding one stroke is incorrect
Notice that conventional Name Reading principle followed 日本熊崎氏姓名學 from Japan. Japanese name are 4 characters so in order for 3-character chinese name to work they added 1-stroke chinese character on top of surname to form 天格. Now this illustration is 2-chinese character name Zhang Jie a Chinese pop singer; so similarly since there is this absent of last name they also uses 1-stroke chinese character to fill in the blank. Now we have a problem because 外格 is a PERMANENT numeric 2. See below what “2” means:
numeric 2：两仪之数，混沌未开，进退保守，志望难达 （凶数）inauspicious
If you give a 2nd thought most citizens in China adopt a 2-character chinese name then all of them 外格is bad which means they got bad 人际关系 relationships/networking? You will be surprised that most computer software & most Mr. XYZ are based on this formula??
There is this wise saying of 10 main ingredients to succeed in life. They are destiny (命), luck (运), Feng Shui (风水), name (姓名) and hard work (读书) and the rest. One’s name is influence one’s path to success and having a good name is extremely important. A good and auspicious name can positively influence a person’s career, marriage, health and relationship.
Baby auspicious name sometime COMPROMISE is necessary to fit the Child’s lucky bazi element
Over the years sometime there are constraints for a 100% perfect auspicious baby name
(a) Limitation due to Surname. E.g. If a child bazi requires “water element” and his Surname is “王 4 stroke”. In order to form an auspicious number requires a minimum add up to “29 stroke” in order to form water element based on 81 画吉凶. Therefore the middle name have to be 25 stroke i.e. 王4 + 25-stroke middle name = “29”. The choice of 25-stroke chinese character is very limited
(b) The name must be suitable to the child’s Birth profile lucky element 金 metal 水 water 木 wood 火 fire 土 earth
(c) Based on 八十一画 数之灵动 ONLY SPECIFIED NUMBERS are auspicious or inauspicious e.g. from 1-10 number of stroke only 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 & 8 are lucky.
(d) The element chosen must be in harmony 三才 (5 element conformity)
(e) The Chinese character and the number of stroke calculation must suit the child’s bazi lucky element
(f) Sometime Middle Name is already fixed by zupu 族谱 clan history 家谱
Due to the 6 conditions above, sometime compromise is necessary to ensure that your son get the best possible combination. Obviously there are others who find this method very tedious & prefer to churn out a fixed algorithm from computer software which cost only $50 online that the structure is correct BUT with NO HELP TO your Child’s BAZI 八字用神 LUCKY ELEMENT.
It begs the question whether you want a PERFECT STRUCTURE where all the numerals 天格 Heaven (fixed)、人格 Human 外格 networking,总格 total 与 地格 old age are “auspicious only number wise” but no benefit to your child’s lucky elements at all!

999 happy client and 1 out 1000 client that i “refunded” due to client’s unfounded emotion over some chinese character. Read this before making any payment, i do not have control over the emotional feelings about certain Chinese characters.
In some cases due to ancestors culture 家谱，又称族谱、家乘、祖谱、宗谱 等 the middle name is fixed, so we will only provide the last name. However there are instances that 家谱 does not work well for all members of the family due to the five elements harmony for the child’s birth configuration.
