Comments for the name Shun

Comments for SHUN (1):

I was looking through Chinese names for a story I'm writing, and my hero's name is Jian-Shun. "Strong, smooth/agreeable." I think that reflects the warrior's personality/disposition quite well.

Considering that "shun" is a word that means to deliberately avoid. It makes me think of shunning. This name may look fine in Chinese, but in English it sounds ridiculous and depressing.

Yeah, not for anglophones. The meaning is ironic, as most people would not want to shun a smooth or agreeable person. It would make a strange, funnily cute middle name for a Chinese girl. But, whatever you do, NOT A FIRST NAME!
