There are a couple of changes to the search form at the top of the page.1. Matching name elements now show in the search suggestions. If you aren't familiar with the *name elements* on this site, they are a collection of words, word fragments and other non-name elements that somehow figure in the construction of names. You can browse this collection here: https://www.behindthename.com/elements. If you view a name element, you can see all the names descended from it (eg https://www.behindthename.com/element/hild). This collection includes many Chinese/Japanese/Korean logograms and their transcriptions, and you can search for them by entering either the logogram or the transcription into the search bar.2. Search suggestions now show after you enter a single character. Previously you had to type at least 2 letters. This is helpful when searching by Chinese character.Please let me know if you notice any bugs!
