TAG : Meaning of Jeremy Chang Ee Jay’s Name (郑 奕 吉吉)

Well … this was my very first tag and was tag by jazzmint .. Never done any tag before since I started blogging. Luckily not so difficult. 🙂

Papa was English education (“banana”) and I was Chinese education. So just nice for us to choose our boy name , Papa choose English name and I choose Chinese name.

English name : Jeremy
We list out quite number of English name , I like the name started with ‘J’ . At first we thot Jeremiah was a nice name, But after we discussed, we found the name was a bit too long . It’s have to pronounced as jare-ah-MYE-ah. . Another problem was how if Jer friends especially Malay friends or Malay teachers cant pronounce the name ?? cos we are in Malaysia mah … it will turn out bahasa name
“Je-ri-miah” ..that will totally different and turn out to be a funny name .

Jeremy was variant from Jeremiah . So we decide to give Jeremy to our little boy !!

Chinese Name : Chang Ee Jay. ( 郑 奕 吉吉)
As for the Chinese character , I like this 吉吉, It’s a new Chinese character , you can’t find this character in old Chinese dictionary or even online Chinese-english dictionary. It’s a new character . It’s same meaning as . Meaning intelligent. In Chinese character means lucky, propitious and good . 吉吉 got 2 character of . Double propitious !!
We choose this 吉吉 character first then only we choose the middle name to match the last name and we found character seem to be a good name to match 吉吉 . meaning magnificent . With Magnificent and intelligent cum double propitious ..

Before the final decision was made, we have few Chinese name in list for my parents in law to choose, there also like the name that we were choosing .. phewww… luckily !!!!

Spelling for Ee Jay was an idea from my best friend (Siew Ling) cos the third name was abit difficult to come out with a word and Ee Jay turn out to be a very nice name too.

That’s how the name came fromJeremy Chang Ee Jay.
