Chinese Male boy Baby Names from China

This is a collection of popular male boy baby names from China along with their meanings. China is a fast growing nation with a population expected to be 1,357,313,812 (predicted for 2013) and the need for baby names is constant. Of course like any other nation, Chinese baby names are constantly changing and this is merely a selection of baby boy names. Names in China have a number of different roots, gleaned from over 5000 years of Chinese heritage and diverse dialects such as Mandarin and Cantonese dialects, different dynasties or religious influence like Buddhism or Confucianism

Traditions in China vary considerably from the Western culture when naming a baby. Chinese names are only ever repeated by complete accident with the majority of given Chinese names being completely unique. The given names below are therefore only really examples of some names which could be given to children. The order in which names in China are presented is the reverse to those from Western cultures. So, traditionally these would therefore be written in the following order: surname, given name. Often, confusion will arise as many western based (or children of nationals who have now settled in a country) will adopt a Western name such as an English baby name but continue to use their given Chinese name as a middle name.This page concentrates on boys names but the site also caters for Chinese Girl Names.
