What’s the Chinese name for Donald?
It has been transliterated as either 唐諾 (táng nuò) or 當諾 (dāng nuò).
唐 (táng) is most known as the name of the Tang Dynasty. It’s also a Chinese surname. It does have negative meanings of exaggerative, boastful, in vain, or for nothing, but people don’t think about these when it is used in a name and as the first character.
This is one of the reasons it’s insufficient to rely on a dictionary to create a Chinese name yourself unless you also know all the potential connotations not mentioned in the book.
當 (dāng) is appropriate or to regard as.
諾 (nuò) is to promise.
Whenever you see 言 (yán) on the left side of a character, it has to do with speech or words.
