Chang is a boy's name of Chinese origin that stretches to over 3,000 years ago. Boasting such a long lineage, it’s likely no surprise that Chang is closely related to several distinctive Chinese characters, each invigorating it with promising qualities. As a variation of Chāng, it encompasses its meaning as "flourish," "prosper," or "sunlight"—certainly a name of far-reaching potential. Yet its roots in Chàng transform its meaning to "smooth," "free," and "unrestrained"—qualities that align it to the Taoist principle of inaction. Overall, this name is said to come from important officials Chang Yi and Chang Xian in the 27th Century BC with the meaning of “lasting forever.” Grounded in harmony, Chang is a wonderful name to bestow upon your little one in hopes that they achieve long-lasting vitality.
