BOHAI.  Chinese name meaning "sea waves," from () po1 1135a "waves; a ruffled surface" and () hai3 470c "the sea." (A Mandarin-Romanized Dictionary of Chinese, MacGillivray, 1921). 

... the tribes in the north, the progenitors of the Manchus (originally spoken of as Sishun and Suchen), were becoming sufficiently civilised to form themselves into one or more organised states, known successively as Fuyu and Yilow, then Wuchi, and finally Mogo, which split up into two, Heishui, or Black Water, in the north, and Sumo in the south.  The last-named developed into a powerful state called Bohai, which was recognised by the Chinese Emperor early in the eighth century... In the tenth century a powerful tribe called Ketans dispossessed the Bohai... (The Long White Mountain, James, 1888)
