Could you tell me the meaning of this seal? I got it as a present from China but I don't know what it means...

  • The character 瓦 is a family name and 尼亚 is a given one so its safe to assume its a name seal. Typical name seals would also contain an additional character 印 signifying that it was a name seal. Dec 20, 2016 at 21:35

This is probably a transliteration of a non-Chinese name. 瓦尼亚 rendered in Pinyin romanization is wǎ ní yà. Unless a set of characters was provided to the person who carved the seal, that is how the carver decided to transliterate your username (and personal name?), Anja.

  • Thanks @Anja. If you like my answer, please mark it as the accepted answer!
