Whe I typed Lan in, I didn't expect anything to come up. You see this is my mother's nickname, because her real name is Liana, and she just gets called Lan by her friends. Also, she is not Chinese, she is Scottish. For her it is pronounced LAN, not LON. I think this name is very good.

This name is often used in conjunction with another character, e.g. Yulan (Yu-Lan), which literally means "Jade Orchid" and is used to describe a type of Chinese magnolia. Xiulan (Xiu-Lan) is another conjunction, which means "Elegant Orchid".
