Yao Yin Hui

Yao = Eav = handsome, elegant
Yin = silver, cash, money, wealth
Hui = favor, benefit, confer kindness

Yao Yin Hui = Linda Eav!
Finally, after 21 years, the mystery of my Chinese name is solved!
So, last year when my uncle said we could be related to Yao Ming, he wasn't pulling my leg. After all, we do share a last name. It's not a very popular last name either. My cousin said it's ranked like 98, where Feng and Chen are like the top two.
