The Friendly Explanation: 霁 (Ji: Qin Tian or Sunny Sky)= 雨 ( Yu or Rain) +齐(Qi, Chi or Unity , Neat)


(Yan or Color) = Product (Chan Ping) + Water (Shui) + Pages (Ye)

(Ji: Qin Tian or Sunny Sky)=   ( Yu or Rain)  +齐(Qi, Chi  or Peace, Unity , Neat, Truce)

Under the original name 'Ji',
we shall be aware that Ji
in Chinese character has two counterparts,
Which means Ji = Yu (Rain) + Qi or Chi (Unity or Neat),
In English, it refers to The Clear Sky After T-storms
or Snow-storms, the person takes such a rare
word as her name, which represents her wish:
one can always see sunshine and rainbow regardless
how dark the day becomes,
how violent the weather turns,
and (in metaphor) how dangerous the situation is!
Thus, understanding Ji as a faith and hope,
despite pressure, misfortune, or discouragements,
we know the person better via her strength
and wisdom upon her suffering,
Also, Ji can be seen as victory
after a battle of serious arguments,
Life is game,
each triumph is overwhelming
although the joyful moments can be very short,
This tells why or how "Ji" is named from the first place,
of course, taking 'Ji" the spelling,
we can find dozens of other meanings...
"Yan" originally is color,
which is formed by "product=Chan Pin", "water=Shui",
and "page=ye"...very interesting?!
to constitute the whole character.


  1. by looking at the characters, one can understand the name,

    I used baiduc.com to find chinese characters,

    google.com to see baidu.com,


  2. names give people wishes or hope.

    yanji is a sound name to know.

  3. at times, understanding one's name is key.

  4. yan as a family name, it is rich and superb.
    a smart choice to choose ji,


  5. how beautiful names seem to be.

    well done.
