Ping Means "Peace"

Lily's middle name will be "Ping." That's her Chinese first name. We dug around on the internet to see if we could find what it meant. The first definition we found was "duckweed," but that didn't sound quite right nor did it sound very charming for a little girl's name...and besides that, I have no clue what duckweed is. Finally, we found a site with Chinese characters and matched the character that was on the paperwork we received from China. The symbol you see in the picture is the one we matched, and it means "peace." And I'm glad of that...I'm sure Lily would soon have grown tired of her father calling her "Daddy's little duckweed."
