For a thing I'm basically fleshing out a wuxia style martial sect. Just trying to name a few things and people. I'm doing all the research I can, but it really takes someone who is familiar with the language to tell whether it just sounds awkward and makes no sense, or if I've stumbled upon an unfortunate pun or reference.
MíngYì Sect 明义- the sect in question
JiànShè 建設- department in the sect, basically logistics
Family name: Mò莫 Given Name:SuìBăi碎柏 I care less about this name being awkward as she was given it casually (ex:I know Băi is usually masculine). Mò is because she has no family or background, and for the rest she was being specifically compared to a tree that had been badly damaged but still had new leaves
Family Name: Shǐ史 Given Name: ĀnLán安岚 Courtesy Name: JūnNíng军寧 A person of high stature in the sect, all the references to peaceful being in direct opposition to his actual personality
Name: Elder HuáLù 滑逯 No family name for a reason. Gave to himself, supposed to be descriptive
Family Name: Yǒng永 Given Name: Yù玉 Courtesy Name: LínJīng琳精 Rich kid from powerful family
Family Name: Hé河 Courtesy Name: DòngChéng栋诚 Head of the sect, elder therefore his given name never really gets used
Family Name: Liǔ柳 Given Name: ShēnShuǐ深水 Courtesy Name: LiánZhàn㢘湛 Direct desciple of the above, so good standing
Family Name: Chén陳 Given Name: Cǎo草 Courtesy Name: Xuē薛 Relatively low ranking person in management position
Family Name: Huáng黄 Given Name: XíXū習胥 Courtesy Name: Low ranking person, the assistant of the above
Family Name: Jū居 Given Name: LéiZhū雷諸 Courtesy Name: Commern person of no particular rank
Family Name: Wàn萬 Given Name: WèiJiū衛鬮 Courtesy Name: HuáiYì 懷義 Given name was meant to help bring him luck
I've done my best but I'd appreciate someone pointing off anything that just seems off and suggestions.
(I realize my formatting of the names are off from the standard, right now I just have them written this way for reference. In the actual writing Mò SuìBăi will be Mo Suibai.)
