Tavia Yeung and Him Law Announce Changing Their Names

Raising a baby during a pandemic year is not an easy feat, and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Him Law (羅仲謙) have already taken extra health precautions in caring for their six-month-old daughter Hera. To ensure the family’s well-being, the couple is even taking drastic measures such as changing their Chinese names, a move which some believe to improve feng shui and bring greater fortune.

It was said that Tavia initially had difficulty conceiving because of her poor health, as she suffered from rheumatoid arthritis on her spine and numerous pains. Slowing down her acting career significantly after marriage to nurse her body back to health, Tavia was finally able to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother. Since becoming parents this April, Tavia’s social media has been filled with pictures of Hera, and Him’s life revolves around his daughter too.

The couple recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary and their first anniversary as new parents.  The pair have made an important decision to change their Chinese names for the sake of their daughter.

Announcing her new Chinese name as Yeung Sin Yiu (楊茜堯) and Him’s name as Law Chi Yik (羅子溢), Tavia wrote, “In a blink of an eye, Hera is already six months old. Over the past year, we have experienced many changes. For the well-being of our family, we have made a decision to change our names starting today.”  Despite their name changes, Tavia emphasizes that they are still the same people they have always been and realizes that it will take time for others to get used to the changes.

While sending their blessings to the family, many netizens also have questions about their new names. Some are confused about the pronunciation of the character “茜” which can be pronounced as “sai” or “sin”. Some also felt that it would be very hard to dissociate Tavia from her original Chinese name, Yeung Yi, which she has been known as for over 20 years.

      I’m calling this a bad move. Both are well established in heir careers, they can’t just disassociate themselves from their original names. Like everyone knows Oscar Leung as Wai Wai no one uses his new name.
      It’s not like they just started and no one knows them. Give it a couple months I bet they’ll find it doesn’t work lol.

        @bubbles23 100% agree. Their new names don’t even flow as nicely anymore. No one will use them. Also why did him do this now? He’s finally back on tvb and promoting and filming series so it doesn’t make sense.

          @tt23 Like I understand if you just become an actress/singer and want a stage name. Heck even Ali’s name is a stage name. But like you said it doesn’t make sense at this time.

        @bubbles23 I always thought only older generations like my mom/grandparents are superstitious of such things like name changing & putting your bed this way and not that way? LOL I guess not, I can never understand why people believe in that that stuff. I guess it’s just me. Both changing names? lol haha ok

          @wm2017 I know… Feng Shui is such a scam. If it worked those people would be billionaires and never get ill by that logic.

          alot of people would argue that it indeed works. i was told that the more successful an asian person is, the more they would believe in feng shui. i think they credited the success of japan to the feng shui set up between tokyo and kyoto. in fact japanese people are a big believer in feng shui too. not sure about koreans and i bet malyasian, singaporians, and vietnamese too due to large chinese presence.
          i think it does have some merits such as setting up your home might affect your mode thus affecting how you might do something. but that’s the extent, i don’t think it actually brings luck.

          @wm2017 you would be surprised how many of the younger generation believe in the scam of feng shui. Everyone here is right about Tavia and Him Law being too established in their careers for a name change as their names are household names. This feng shui is nothing but superstition. I still don’t get it why Taiwanese actor Mike He had labour induced on his wife because he did not want the second baby born under the due date sign. Man, the world has gone more than crazy.

      I mean they could always use their old names as a stage name and use their new names privately
