I am trying to find out the Mandarin characters and the meaning behind a name, Most web sites I go to have very generic answers, if they answer at all.

This thread doesn't answer my question Characters to pinyin for names?

I have tried various websites but no luck as yet.

Any suggestions would be kindly appreciated

  • No. Even with exact pinyin and tone, we can only guess one out of the many words that have the same pronunciation. For example: 燕彥艷(yàn); 文聞(wén); 炆玟(wén/mín).

  • What is the name? Many names are fairly common. Someone here will know the name!
