Meaning of the baby name YING.


YING ().  Unisex.  Chinese name, meaning "clever," from () ying3 (orig. "a pendent ear of grain"). (A Mandarin-Romanized Dictionary of Chinese, MacGillivray, 1921)

... On reaching Fatshan the flour was seized, and at the time of seizure a squeeze of $200.00 was demanded, and of course refused.  The seizure was made by the native customs and not only was the boat and cargo seized, but the boatman, name, Lan Ying as well. (Report on Inspection of U.S. Consulates in the Orient, Peirce, 1906)

...After some time there was a giggling at the door, and the old woman cried out, "Ying-ning! your cousin is here."  There was then a great tittering as the maid pushed her in, stopping her mouth all the time to try and keep from laughing.  "Don't you know better than to behave like that?" asked the old woman, "and before a stranger, too."  So Ying-ning controlled her feelings, and Wang made her a bow, the old woman saying, "Mr. Wang is your cousin; you have never seen him before.  Isn't that funny?"  Wang asked how old his cousin was, but the old woman didn't hear him, and he had to say it again, which sent Ying-ning off into another fit of laughter. (Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, Pu-Giles, 1916)
