A very strong name for males, though a little too short to stand on its own. My younger brother was named Alexander Wei, as a pun on 'Alexander the Great'.

My name is "巍巍" (Wei1 Wei1) [possibly Wei2 Wei2 in Taiwan], which means "the loftiest" or "the greatest." So everyone calls me Ace, which A) Sounds like "Wei", and B) Has the same meaning of highest/greatest.

The character 巍 (Wei1) is related to the Wei dynasty if the top radical (meaning mountain) is shaved off. The tone then changes to second, making it Wei2.

The character itself is easy to read to young adults and adults who are native speakers of Mandarin Chinese (Due in part to its similarity to "Wei" of the "Wei dai", the Wei Dynasty, as mentioned earlier, and partly because of its cultural significance and prominence in traditional Chinese music), however, it is only taught in college as part of the curriculum.
