The characters below are definitely "胡哥"

Two meanings maybe:

  1. brother Hu where Hu stands for a family name

  2. a popular actor called "胡歌" with his name misspelled

according to the English part Hugh,I am gonna take meaning 2 , because that actor's English name is Hugh . The seal maybe a fanmade one but I can't figure out why it uses "哥".

  • Hugh was my grandad he had it made for him in Hong Kong many years ago I thought it might be his name translated to Chinese under but I was looking it up and it dos t seem like it is Sep 29, 2021 at 9:55
  • He was also called Hughie so do you think that could be why? For the “哥” Sep 29, 2021 at 11:15

    I think when a Chinese reader, (not familiar with the particular pronunciation of "Hugh"), on seeing "Hugh" would transliterate it as "Hu" - "gh", 胡 - 歌 -- (Hú - gē) Sep 30, 2021 at 2:44

“HU”= It's a last name. “GE”= It's an appellation. For example, my family name is Zhang. If I'm older, you can call me Uncle Zhang. If you're older, call me grandpa Zhang.
