Meaning of the baby name TUNG-MEI.


TUNG-MEI.  Chinese name, meaning "winter plums," from () tung1 1513c "winter," and () mei2 958c "plums, prunes." (A Mandarin-Romanized Dictionary of Chinese, MacGillivray, 1921).  Also spelled Dongmei.

    In the little cabin of the junk, under a roof of matting which let in the morning sunlight through its meshes, Tung Mei bent over her darling.  The boy lay on a mattress, delirious in the fever which had followed his exposure, struggling every few moments to rise, devoured by fear of those mad gods who had chased him down the mountain.  The young widow listened in agony to his wild appeal.
    "Tung Mei!  Tung Mei!  Have they got it?  Have they got my soul?  Oh, hide it, hide it from them; hide it quickly."... (The Wanderer On A Thousand Hills, Wherry, 1917)
