1st of all, do you have a 家谱? If yes, then just need to find 1 more word to make up. Are you naming baby yourself, or are you planning to get someone to do it for you?
My criteria for chinese names is as follows:
1) Not too common
2) Not too difficult to write, ie lesser 笔画
3) Easy to read, not new fangled words that dont't exist in dictionaries
4) Got meaning
5) When read together with surname, has no adverse meaning and must be 顺
Do you have words that you particularly like? If yes, then write them down in a notebook and do some mix and matches if you are naming baby yourself.
