Trần Lệ Xuân, more popularly known as Madame Nhu, was the de facto First Lady of South Vietnam from 1955 to 1963. She was the wife of Ngô Đình Nhu, who was the brother and chief-advisor to President Ngô Đình Diệm. As Diệm was a lifelong bachelor and because she and her family lived in Independence Palace together with him, she was considered to be the first lady.
5 girls in 2015 and 6 boys in 1995 were given Xuân or Xuan in the USA, possibly because of Vietnamese or Chinese descent.
Wow. I love the meaning, love the look of it and love the way it sounds! It's gorgeous! ^__^
If the meaning is solely 'spring', then it should be spelled 'xuân', with an a-circumflex. [noted -ed]
Xuan comes from the Chinese word for "pristine jade" written as 璇.
Xuan is also the Asturian form of Juan (John). [noted -ed]
I think it's kind of pretty. And I like the meaning.
