Zhong (忠, Loyal) is not a real surname though.

In terms of Zhong surnames, the three most common are 钟 (surname of Zhong Yao), 中 (same character as Zhongguo aka Middle Kingdom), 仲 (as in second or intermediate).

The options for Wei are even greater since we're not limited by Surnames.

Is there anyone here that can tell me if there is a style name that means something along the lines of "eccentric inventor"?

Thanks. I know some Japanese and it helps, but there are quite a few differences. Good to know that I don't need the Shui.

I used to use fozza.com for all my chinese characters and for deciding upon style names, but that site seems to be down. Anybody got an alternative?

Something I want to make sure I'm understanding correctly followed by a question: A child, regardless of gender, will inherit their father's surname; however, a woman who has married will keep their original surname (not changing it to their husband's, as is typically in Western cultures) - so if I were to RP a man with a wife and daughter - the wife would have a different surname than her husband and daughter. Is their any way that the wife in this scenario would introduce themselves or be referred to that implies/states they are married to their husband/mother of their child?

Can have several different meanings. One possibility using the proper surname would be mosquito larvae... seriously. Id need to know what characters you were using or what you intended for it to mean.

Okay, so I have "Wang" as a family name. I need a character for that.

But I need one for a given name. Kind of an odd request: can someone give me a name (and a corresponding character) that is genderless? That can be used interchangeably by both males and females?

Thanks in advance!
