Help Needed For Baby Name in Hokkien

Post by brianwee »

Hi All,

I'm Singaporean and would really appreciate if you could let me know the Hokkien translation for the Chinese name

黄锦耀

I believe that 黄 should be Ng in Hokkien - but im somehow a Wee.. so help with just 锦耀

Thanks in advance!
Brian

Hi brianwee:

Not that 黃 "should" be Ng. You are not a descendant of 泉州 but 漳州 hence 黃 is pronounced Wee or Ooi in Penang. ^^

Your baby will be......

黃錦耀 Wee + Kim or Gim + Yau or Yow
