纬 seems to mean latitude or weft/woof but I am not sure if it would work in this way with the second meaning

As an additional question, would 炜喆 mean brilliant wisdom? Is the character 炜 a character that most people would know?

Would either of these make sense as a fictional character's first name? (An adult male in the 21st century)

  • 炜喆 sounds cool but kinds of hard to get the meaning at the first glance, since both of them are 生僻字 (rare characters) compared to 纬哲 Commented Mar 20, 2023 at 12:46

  1. Yes, 纬 means both "woof" and "parallels of latitude".

  2. In itself, 炜 (brilliant red; glowing) isn't a frequently used word, but its equal, "辉” (bright; glorious), is. Note that 喆 (wise; sagacious) is also a rarely used word, but its equal, “哲” (philosophy) is. Yes, 炜喆 can be interpreted as "brilliant wisdom".

  3. It will depend on the character you want to depict.
