Carlene Alexander | 5 comments I've just found a photocopied chapter of a book from over 10 years ago. The book title is Chinese Personal Names but I didn't note author and want to credit him/ her/ them in a bibliography
the sction I have is called The Origin of Chinese Family Names and gives words in pin yin, and Chinese characters with their English meaning
It groups them by things like topographical features, parts of the body, moral qualities, emotion words, birds, animals, flowers, foods etc etc
google books search gives one book with this name and the publisher as the CIA which seems unlikely
