Haha, got tagged by someone other than sis, this time by sweetpea. And since it's still quite new, I want to do this fast so I can tag others. I never get to tag anyone before because by the time the tag reaches me everyone I know has done it already.
The origin of Ethan is Hebrew. We're not Jewish, we have our religion but we're not religious. I don't know the history of the name but it means firm and strong. I didn't think of the name as what I wanted my child to be but when he arrived prematurely I thought this name really suits him. Got his name from the actor, Ethan Hawke. He's cute (but recently I find his teeth not very attractive) and the only Ethan I know. Turns out Ethan is one of the most popular baby names.
Another name considered was Justin. E for Eddie/Ethan and J for JoAnn/Justin. Didn't think of girls names at first because I've always wanted my first to be a boy. I was the one who thought of the names. But right after his birth the midwife asked us what's his name and Eddie's the one who said it. I was lying on the bed thinking, actually I wanted to have a few more choices but okay.
No Chinese name for him since we're Chinese illiterate. I wanted an 'invisible' Chinese name for him (cause mine is, my mum was pretty cool). I asked MIL for ideas. Then she said what for give Chinese name if you just want to call him Ethan? So what she did was just translate Ethan to Chinese, I also didn't learn to write. Then later I saw this TVB series and heard one that I really like, 'Tin Long' (in Cantonese). MIL told me it means fine weather. But we didn't use it anyway.
