To Nyla,

Chen is my family name. In China, family name usually doesn't mean anything. It usually passes down from the father's side.

However, every family name has its beginning. Experts say Chen comes from a country. In very very ancient time, Huandi( He is considered as the ancestor of Chinese) conferred some countries, one of which named Chen.
Fun topic!

I have read many definitions for the name I was given, "Monique". It was my mother's mother's name. My mother's first daughter was also given thatn name, but she died a few days after birth.

I will first copy the French version of the latest one I have found. For those who understand French, you will get a better sense than the translation I will give after. I am not a very good translator!

"Voilà une femme volontaire qui a les deux pieds sur terre! Simple, naturelle et réfléchie, elle dissimule bien sa sensibilité! Fiabe, dynamique et attachée à son travail, rien ne peut l'arrêter! Autant elle recherche la sécurité, autant elle a envie de changement; pour elle l'idéal serait le changement dans la continuité! Solitaire et indépendante, elle aime les voyages, les sports et la nature. Réservée, Monique rêve pourtant d'exprimer son immense tendresse."

Translation (as best I can):

"Now there's a willful women who's feet are both grounded! Simple, natural and a thinker, she hides her sensitivity well! Dependable, dynamic, and attached to her work, nothing can stop her! As much as she seeks security, as much she seeks change; for her, the ideal would be change within continuity! Solitary and independant, she loves travelling, sports and Nature. Reserved, Monique nonetheless dreams of expressing her immense tenderness."
