This is my Chinese name. I love it, the meaning.

Jia in Chinese also has other meanings: good things, nice, sweet. Not only can this word modify a person's appearance but also can describe one person's perfomance or how things, matters go or be in a very good stage.

It's an awesome name, it's on my list of names for girls if I have one.

Someone mentioned that Jia sounds like Julia, actually it isn't so! It's pronounced: JAH. And not JEE-ah.
-- JungKyungSoon  10/16/2007
Yes, it is pronounced JAH, in Chinese, but in English it's pronounced JEE-UH. At least, that's how I pronounce it.

It doesn't mean good, by the way. It means 'family', and hao means Good. ^-^ I hope this was of use!

My name is QiJia in Chinese, and I have been frustrated with my name for a long while because it cannot be directly translated into English and it is so hard to pronounce. Nevertheless it occurred to me that I could probably use the last character "佳”(Jia) since it is the essence of my name. "Qijia" sounds a bit too clunky and hard to remember, but "Jia" is perfect! It means every good thing you can possibly think of, and it has a fine classical feel to it because it is ubiquitous in ancient Chinese writing of morality and happiness. There is a well-known quote from the classical Confucian text Daxue that outlines the three steps towards a good life: "Cultivate yourself, put your family in order, run the local government well, and bring peace to the entire country." And "Jia" stands for family here. What a cool name! I wish all the Chinese living abroad could use their own names and preserve the wonderful meaning and tradition behind them instead of adopting some random, clueless name like "Catherine" and "Jack".
