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.

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

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