Beau Scroll

This is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Beau.

This Chinese character means “wave.”

 tāo
 nami
 
Big Wave Scroll

濤 is the Chinese character for “Big Wave.”

It suggests a wave unlike most, strong and powerful.

濤 is technically also a Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja but it's not commonly used in those Asian languages. Pronunciation in Japanese and Korean is provided above for reference only. Just order this if your audience is Chinese.

Chung Do Kwan

 qīng tāo quǎn
Chung Do Kwan Scroll

靑濤館 is the Korean martial arts style, Chung Do Kwan, meaning “Blue Wave School.”

If you want this in modern Korean Hangul characters, click on the Hangul next to the Korean flag above instead of the button above.

Also Romanized as “Cheong Do Gwan” or “Ch'ŏng Do Kwan.”

 líng gǎn
 reikan
Inspiration Scroll

靈感 is the Chinese word closest to hitting the mark for the English word inspiration.

In a more extended context, I have even seen this translated as “brain wave.”

The first character means alert, departed soul, efficacious, quick, effective, or intelligent.
The second character means to feel, to move, to touch, or to affect.
The combined meaning of these two characters changes a bit, but I think it's nice to know the individual meanings to give you a better understanding of where a word comes from.

You could describe this word as “the thought that pops into your head just before you patent the greatest widget ever invented that everyone in the world will want.”
At least, that's the idea.

This term can also mean “intelligent thought” if you translate it directly from each character. If you are looking for inspiration or need to be inspired, this is the word for you.


霊When the first character was absorbed into Japanese from Chinese, an alternate form became the standard in Japan. The Kanji shown to the right is the form currently used in Japan. This is still considered an alternate form in China to this day. it’s readable by both Chinese and Japanese people but if your audience is Japanese, I recommend the Kanji shown to the right - just click on that Kanji to order that version.

 yǔ
 ame
 
Rain Scroll

雨 is how to write “rain” in Chinese. If rain is your name or has some significance to you in your life, this is the character you want.

If your name is Varṣā or Varsha, this is how your name translates into Chinese.


See Also:  Storm | Water | Wave

 fēng bào
Storm Scroll

風暴 is the Chinese word for storm.

If the meaning of storm is somehow important or significant to you, these are the characters you want.

The first character means wind, and the second means violent or sudden.


Note: This would be understood in Korean Hanja, however, Koreans would generally use these characters in reverse order.

Storm / Windstorm

Best for Japanese audience

 bào fēng
 baku fuu / bou fuu / arashi
Storm / Windstorm Scroll

暴風 is the Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja word for storm (can also mean gale, tempest, typhoon, hurricane, gale, violent wind, or windstorm - especially in Korean and Chinese).

If the meaning of storm is somehow significant to you, these are the Kanji you want.

The first Kanji means violent or sudden. The second Kanji means wind.

This also means storm in Chinese but more in regards to a wind storm than a general storm. It's about the same for this word in Korean.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

 tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Scroll

津波 is the most common way to write tsunami in Japanese.

This version should be considered “Japanese only,” as it's very uncommon to see this version used in Chinese.


Note: Can also be the surname Tsuwa in Japanese.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

 hǎi xiào
 tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Scroll

海嘯 is a common way to write tsunami in Japanese and Chinese (there's more than one way to write the same word).


Note: Can also be written as 津波, 海嘯 or 海啸.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

 jīn làng
 tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Scroll

津浪 is another way to write tsunami in Japanese and Chinese (there's more than one way to write the same word).


Note: Can also be the surname Tsuha in Japanese.

Carry On, Undaunted

 qián fù hòu jì
Carry On, Undaunted Scroll

前赴後繼 is a Chinese proverb that figuratively means “to advance dauntlessly in wave upon wave.”

It suggests that you should or can carry on and have the strength to keep going.

While this proverb is a little bit militaristic, it suggests that despite a fallen comrade (or perhaps a loved one), you should keep going and work towards the goal they intended.

 bō làng
 harou
Wave Scroll

If you like to ride a surfboard, and/or “The Way of the Wave” is your life, 波浪 could be the scroll for you.

The additional meanings contained in these characters include ripple, storm, surge, breaker, wandering, and unrestrained.

 bō
 nami
 
Wave Scroll

波 is the most simple way to express wave in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

This single character means wave. In Japanese, this is pronounced “nami” which is the same “nami” as used in the word “tsunami” (harbor wave).

The Way of the Wave

The Tao of the Waves

 làng zhī dào
The Way of the Wave Scroll

浪之道 is a great title for a surfer whose lifestyle is entwined with the surf and waves.

This can be translated a few different ways:
The Way of the Wave
The Dao of the Wave
The Tao of the Waves
Note: Dao and Tao are the same character (道), just sometimes romanized differently.

The Way of the Wave

 nami no michi
The Way of the Wave Scroll

波の道 is the simple way to write “The Way of the Wave” in Japanese.

I added this at the request of several customers. 波の道 is not a very common Japanese phrase.

波 = Wave
の = Of
道 = Way
The word order is the opposite of English. Most Japanese phrases that end in “の道” are translated to English as “The Way of...”

Technically, you could write “波道” as a shorter version of “The Way of the Wave.” However, without context, 波道 can mean channel or suggest a path to redirect ocean flow.

No Limitations

 màn lán
 man ran
No Limitations Scroll

漫瀾 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for “Having no boundaries or limitations.”

This literally talks of the vastness of an ocean or river.

Character breakdown:
漫 = free; unrestrained; to inundate; overflowing; boundless.
澜 = swelling water; large wave.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
