comment Difference between 學習 and 學
This question has been already asked so for now I've marked it as duplicate. Please use the search function next time to make sure someone else didn't ask it first. The character are simplified and traditional, but the use should be the same. :) If somebody thinks there is a difference between the two questions that I've missed, just let me know.

comment Differentiate 不错 and 没错 in these situations
@tao If you think this question is fundamentally different, you should try to edit your question and say what was not clear in the previous question. Or how this one is different. If you do that, flag your own question so a moderator or high-rep user can reopen it.

comment Why do native speakers often say a character has “no meaning”?
I'm commenting because you're question refers to Chinese names, but if I got what you mean: not all characters must have "meanings" or refer to some concept exactly like some words do in other languages. Think about grammatical words: and, if, so... They don't mean anything, they acquire meaning by being used, they're also called function words, if I can recall correctly. Same thing with some characters, like 了... Ok you know it's used as a particle, but by itself it doesn't have a real meaning like 猫, for example.
