Chinese name: 你好
Pinyin: nǐ hǎo
English name: Hello
Characters: The first character 你 consists of a person radical 亻 and 尔 (meaning, you, pinyin: ěr. ) Originally this character looked like three arrows pointing towards the same target. Now it is simply used as a second person pronoun you.
The second character 好 consists of a woman radical 女 and 子 (meaning: child, pinyin: zǐ). It depicts a mother cuddling her child. Now the character means good.
A literal translation of 你好 in English is you good.
