Meaning Behind Jackie Chan & Bruce Lee's Chinese Names

As a tradition, Chinese Kung Fu stars have their own stage names. It's the same case for both Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. People seldom remember their real names since the stage names are so popular.

Stage Name for Jackie Chan was Cheng Long, literally translated as"Become the Dragon".

Bruce Lee's stage name was Xiao Long, meaning "Little Dragon". Somehow similar?

The Dragon - Mystical creature in Chinese folklore & Mythology, the Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is a symbol of power, strength, and good luck.

So typically you will see Chinese Family plans to give birth on the year of the army of babies...

I am the Warrior of the dragon!
Happy Chinese New Year 2012 everyone!
