Grace

China gé lěi sī
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the name Grace transliterated into Mandarin Chinese.

Please note: This sounds like grace but does not mean grace. If you want the meaning of grace, please choose a different title.

Grace

China ēn
Japan on
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is often translated as "kind act from above", as in "The Grace of God". This doesn't necessarily have to come from God. It could be a favor paid to you, or help that you received (or gave). Of course, you can decide for yourself whether the grace or favor given to you by a friend is actually a gift from God.

Other possible translations of this character:
Favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, beneficial Influence, kindness, indebtedness, obligation, and benevolent influence.

Grace

Japanese Katakana
Japan gureesu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the name Grace written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


This name is written in Katakana, a specifically-Japanese character set.
This selection MUST be written by our Japanese master calligrapher
(sorry, no standard calligraphy service/pricing for this selection).

Elegant / Exquisite / Grace

China měi miào
Japan bimyou
knob
ribbon top
knob

Beyond elegant and exquisite elegance, this is also the word used to say "beautiful" or "marvelous" when referring to a work of art.

Can also be translated as exquisiteness, gracefulness.

Note: Not a commonly-used word in Japanese.

Grace / Favor

China ēn chǒng
Japan on chou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means grace or favor in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

In ancient China, this was a special favor bestowed from a ruler. It could also be the Emperor's generosity towards a favorite person or concubine.

Grace / Favor

China ēn diǎn
Japan on ten
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is one of several ways to express favor or grace in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This version can refer to an act of grace or the granting of a special privilege.

Charm / Grace

China shén yùn
Japan shi nin
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Chinese and Japanese word for charm or grace (in poetry or art) or exceptional artistry.

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

China tiān ēn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free".


Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on"), but it's rarely-used in Japan anymore. Therefore this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

Grace from Heaven
Grace from God

Japanese only
Japan kami no on kei
knob
ribbon top
knob

The first two characters act to create a word that means "divine", "God's", or "The Spirit's".

The last two Kanji mean grace, favor, favour, blessing, or benefit.

Divine Grace

China tiān yòu
Japan ten yuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a Chinese and Japanese word that means divine aid, divine grace, Heaven blessed, or providential help.

Some Chinese people will use this to infer that this means a home or family blessed by heaven or God. This is the shortest way to express that idea anyway.

Grace of God / Divine Blessing

Japan shin kei
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can be translated as, "God's Blessing", "Blessed by God", or "Divine Blessing" in Japanese Kanji.

Mary-Grace

China mǎ lì gé léi sī
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Mary-Grace.

Mary-Grace

Japanese Katakana
Japan meariigureesu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the name Mary-Grace written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


This name is written in Katakana, a specifically-Japanese character set.
This selection MUST be written by our Japanese master calligrapher
(sorry, no standard calligraphy service/pricing for this selection).

Beautiful Virtue

China měi dé
Japan bitoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This word written in Chinese or Korean Hanja can also mean "grace of character" or "noble virtue".


徳There is a slight variation in the modern Japanese Kanji form of the second character. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people (it's the ancient Japanese form anyway).

Divine Protection

Japanese Only
China jiā hù
Japan ka go
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is Japanese for "divine protection" or "the saving grace of God".

Please consider this blessing to be Japanese only. This can have the same meaning in the context of Buddhism in Chinese, but it's also a nickname for "intensive care" at Chinese hospitals.

Note: My Japanese translator says this is not very commonly-used in Japanese. I added this because a customer asked for it. There is not really a better Japanese phrase to express this idea - so this is it if you want it.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.

If you have not set up your computer to display Chinese, the characters in this table probably look like empty boxes or random text garbage.
This is why I spent hundreds of hours making images so that you could view the characters in the "grace" listings above.
If you want your Windows computer to be able to display Chinese characters you can either head to your Regional and Language options in your Win XP control panel, select the [Languages] tab and click on [Install files for East Asian Languages]. This task will ask for your Win XP CD to complete in most cases. If you don't have your Windows XP CD, or are running Windows 98, you can also download/run the simplified Chinese font package installer from Microsoft which works independently with Win 98, ME, 2000, and XP. It's a 2.5MB download, so if you are on dial up, start the download and go make a sandwich.

Some people may refer to this entry as Grace Kanji, Grace Characters, Grace in Mandarin Chinese, Grace Characters, Grace in Chinese Writing, Grace in Japanese Writing, Grace in Asian Writing, Grace Ideograms, Chinese Grace symbols, Grace Hieroglyphics, Grace Glyphs, Grace in Chinese Letters, Grace Hanzi, Grace in Japanese Kanji, Grace Pictograms, Grace in the Chinese Written-Language, or Grace in the Japanese Written-Language.
