Question: Some of my characters, of Chinese descent, have generation names. I know Chinese names are either two or three characters, but I'm wondering - how weird would it be to have the surname, generation name, and then two more characters for the given name part? Would there have ever been a possibility of that happening in real life?
Serach terms: Chinese generation names, generation names, Chinese naming conventions, Ming/(Qing) dynasty names/(naming conventions)
Also - would there be anyone willing to help me name my characters? I've got some tentative ones, but I don't want to pick something with weird connotations or that's just plain odd, but I still want them to fit the characters. Also, not all of my characters are Chinese - several are of Vietnamese, Israeli, Turkish, or Russian or mixed race, so any help with those would be cool too :).
