Choi Twins’ names analysis
after thinking about this for a while, i came to this conclusion:
you know how given names in korean have two ways to be written: hangul && hanja. hanja is not used often but as far as i know it is necessary for some documents. in korea there is this tradition in which they hold a character for generations, normally are the grandparents who choose it ( like the twins: 새영 && 새란. 새 being the character of the family ).
in normal hangul:
새 (sae): bird
란 (ran): to be called
영 (yeong/young): forever, eternity
that means that the name for the twins could be bird called && bird of eternity. makes sense, but not that much, that is when hanja acts. the meaning of the name is given through the hanja though there are DIFFERENT forms to write those characters. there are a lot so in order to not write them all i chose the ones that fit with their personalities. somewhere i read that there is also a belief that the meaning of your name will mark your future. i chose these ones:
勢 (새)= power, force, tendency
亂 (란)= disoderly, chaotic
英 (영)= flower, outstanding, petal, brave, hero
so in short:
새영 (saeyoung/勢英): powerful hero
새란 (saeran/勢亂): powerful chaos
i’m NOT completely sure since i’m still learning but this could be the meaning of their names. but it makes sense considering their roles in the story.
