I tried to research this myself but have come up with zip so far. I hope it's not rude or impolite to ask this but I've been curious about it for years.
You once told me that Yang Sau Chung is a sobriquet for "Yang who holds his center" or something very much like that when I asked why his name on the lineage chart shows up as Yang Zhen Ming.
Since then I've come to wonder what the names Yang Lu Chan and Yang Cheng Fu mean, since they are not the given names of the people involved.
Again, I've tried for quite a while to find out what they mean, but have had absolutely zero success.
If it's not a politically incorrect thing to do, could you please let me know?
It's not anything important or earth shattering, at all, it's merely my curiosity at work.
On a side not, I followed your link here on naming conventions, hoping to get some enlightenment on the above mentioned names (got nowhere) and found a link that allowed me to get my name in Chinese. I like that a lot so here's the link in case anyone else would like to do that:http://www.chinesenames.org/
Unfortunately I can't seem to paste my name in Chinese onto this forum.
I'll keep plugging away at it.
