What was your inspiration? Made for a 90 year old friend, who has a special place in our hearts. She had helped pick a Chinese name for each of my kids. Asian names often have meaning in them, telling of our hopes and dreams for our children. As we live in Sydney, she was given the task of finding a Chinese name which we liked, as well as a name we could Anglicize easily to make it easier for their Caucasian friends to remember!
