Did Jordan Chan’s Name Change Bring Him Luck?

What’s in a name? Apparently, some celebrities think it could make a world of difference, as in the case of Hong Kong artiste Jordan Chan (陈小春) and his wife Cherrie Ying (应采儿), who were recently spilled to have spent millions engaging a renowned geomancer for a name change for their family!

Superstition or Timely Coincidence?

According to Hong Kong press, the 54-year-old was swayed when he saw how actor Him Law (羅子溢) and Tavia Yeung (楊茜堯)’s career fortunes turn for the better after they engaged the services of geomancer Kevin Tan (‏‎陳咢魁) last year. He thus spent hundreds of millions for an auspicious name change for his family of four, though he did not reveal their new names publicly.

While Him himself attributed Tavia and his name change by the geomancer to ‘pure fate’, tabloids speculated that the couple were keen for a son to complete the family. As for Jordan, he has allegedly changed his Chinese name from Chan Siu Chun (陳小春) to Chan Tai Qun (陳泰銓) , while Cherrie had hers altered from Ying Choi-yi (應采兒) to Chan Ding Yim-yi (陳丁冉兒) — dropping her surname for her husband’s, while retaining the last character of her original name.

The power couple, who are based in mainland Chinese markets in recent years, have enjoyed soaring popularity with their appearance on programs such as season 1 of Viva La Romance <妻子的浪漫旅行>, which gave a peek into their offscreen interactions. The two are said to have already completed all necessary identification and legal paperwork for the name change.

Coinciding with the aftermath of the geomancy consultation, Jordan’s income has apparently gone northward from his recent participation on well-received all-male talent show Call Me By Fire <披荊斬棘的哥哥>. Counting his properties worth around $2oo million HKD, cash assets and a portfolio of diverse investments, Jordan’s net worth is estimated to be in the $500 million HKD range.

  1. I will try not to laugh as even my dad believes in this… I bet we dont hear about the many who are unfortunate despite the name change,

  2. In my country, we also have name change however it is done under the belief that the name is too heavy for the kid. Usually the kid is often or always sick so the parents and family will hold ceremony to change the name and the kid will become healthy again.

    The heavy name in this context means the name given is the parents hope for the children, thus the name can mean smart clever beautiful diligent rich prosperous. All the hope put together and too heavy for the kid’s life

  3. No offense but the name changes are not as memorable as their original names. That much bad luck that they need to change names? As for Him Law, so now is Yik Law? Again a rather uninteresting name but if it helps them, it’s their choice. Although wanting a son, that depends on him and their frequency and timeliness. Name changes won’t help one bit.
