Other Origin(s):Chinese, Korean
Bong is a gender-neutral name of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean origin. This gorgeous choice is traditionally a surname and may have derived from Chinese Huáng, meaning "yellow" and Wáng, meaning "king." Its Korean translation of "mythical bird" is just as intriguing. Film buffs will of course think of South Korean film director Bong Joon-ho. This talented artist is known for the Academy Award-winning film Parasite and the 2013 science fiction hit Snowpiercer. Perhaps your little star will inherit his vivid imagination!
