“In ancient days, all parents wish to give their children a good and meaningful name. The selected names hold expectations that parents have of their children, with the hope that the children will bring glory to their ancestors and become prominent figures.” – Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong of Way Fengshui Group
Possibly the most important word to each individual, a name is the greatest connection to one’s identity and individuality. It is a gift and legacy from our parents, and to our children, which would stay with us throughout and beyond our lives.
A good name can bring positive influences and soaring success to an individual, hence the importance of selecting a good name. This is especially important in the current climate where COVID-19 continues to create havoc around the world. With the added risks of the coronavirus pandemic, expecting parents are bound to have additional concerns, but do stay calm and plan ahead.
