Comments for HONG:

Hong could also mean "red". If this were the case, then it should be used for a girl. I know, I'm Chinese.

This is the name of the female watchguard (a lousy one at that) from the Touhou Project.

In her autobiographical epic Wild Swans, British-Chinese author Jung Chang writes that Hong can mean "red" or "wild swan" in Chinese.

Chang's birth name was Er-Hong (二鴻), meaning "Second Swan". However, as it sounded like the Chinese word for "faded red", she asked her father to rename her something more commanding.
