Questions related to Chinese names.
Names are usually a kind of proper noun, i.e. terms that refer to and designate a single entity.
This tag may encompass:
- person's names (anthroponyms), including given names and surnames
- place names (toponyms)
- names of institutions (companies, schools, etc.)
- commercial names of products
- anything else that can have a uniquely identifiable name
An easy, but not exhaustive, rule of thumb to know whether a noun is proper or not is whether it could be capitalized in alphabetical languages.
For place names, you should prefer the place-names tag.
