our kennel name

kennel Xin-Feng's (prefix)

xin+feng We named our kennel "Xin-Feng", this is Chinese for "New Prosperity". This name comes from a poem from the Chinese poet Yu Xin (513-581).
The father from Liu Bang, the founder of the Han dynasty, came from the village Feng (Prosperity). To cure his father from his homesickness Liu Bang build a copy of Feng next to the capital Chang'an, that was called Xin-Feng (New Prosperity).
 From the Dutch book: Spiegel van de klassieke Chinese poëzie, by W.L. Idema

At the time we choose our kennel name we could use some prosperity, so we thought it would be nice to give the pups from our kennel this name.

Some years back, while surfing the internet, I found a photo of Shi Xin Feng (Beginning-to-Believe Peak) in the Huang mountains. Beginning to believe... is a nice name too!
