On Monday (Oct 26), Hongkong stars Tavia Yeung and Him Law surprised many when they announced they had changed their Chinese names. Tavia, 41, is now known as Yeung Sin Yiu, instead of Yeung Yi, while her husband Law Chung Him, 36, will now go by Law Chi Yat.
Following the announcement, there were speculations that the couple had enlisted the help of a fortune teller and changed their names in hopes that it would help them conceive a son. Their reasoning? The middle character in Him’s new name Chi has the same pronunciation as son in Chinese.
