if it's tone 3, the charactercan only be 滲 in common,

let me guess some other words

saam3 si1 三思 think again
sau3 sing3 獸性 animal personality
saang1 sing3 生性 be good
saam1 sing4 三成 thirty percent

if u want it be filial, it should have an "n" sound instead of an "m" at the end.

not sure if this should be "三聖", ie, the trinity?

Filial ?

it's the 3rd one that i guessed in the previous reply. i.e. saang1 sing3 生性, be good (to your parents.)
