Tael is a boy's name of mixed origins. It is both Chinese and Malay. Its Malay influence comes from the word tahil, meaning "weight." As a unit of measurement in Chinese currency, Tael also refers to weight. Baby is worth more than their weight in gold, but giving them the reminder that there is a weight to their words and actions with just a short name is an important lesson that shouldn't be passed up.
