From Sino-Korean (yeong) meaning "flower, petal, brave, hero", as well as other hanja characters which are pronounced similarly. It usually occurs in combination with another character, though it is sometimes used as a stand-alone name. This name was borne by Jang Yeong-sil (where Jang is the surname), a 15th-century Korean scientist and inventor.
