Meaning:Happy; glad; joyous; harmony
Xinyi is a gender-neutral name of Chinese origin, befitting a contented, sunny soul. Joviality flows from Xinyi's very construct, the name being the euphoric meeting of xīn, meaning "happy," "glad," or "joyous," and yí, meaning "harmony." Xinyi may emerge as an exuberant title from this pleasing union of characters, but its components keep it somewhat grounded. In Chinese philosophy, xīn (心) also means the "heart-mind," referring to the ancient belief that the heart is the seat of thinking and judgement. Bestowed upon baby, Xinyi encourages a balance between thought and feeling, allowing them to embrace every facet of their nature with glee.
