While inputting PinYin's shui, I got the character 娷 among others. Neither automatic translators nor dictionaries gave me an accurate translation of it. I can identify the radicals 女 (female) and 垂 (to hang, to dangle; to hand down, to bequeath; almost, near). Maybe someone stumbled upon that character and knows what it means? Thanks!

“娷”字的【字海】释义
㈠拼音zhui4。
①推委。
②饥声。

㈡拼音shui4。
①古女子人名用字。
②姓。

Two readings here. The first is zhui4, which comes with the meanings: to shirk responsibility/to blame others and sound of hunger. The second is shui4, which was just a character used in feminine names.
