Chinese names regularly consist of three parts.
Societies in ancient China were made up of extended
families, so the first part of the name is the last
name, the family name. The second part is the
middle name and should be the symbol of the
generation. The third part is just your first name,
your own name.
in the countryside, people still use this rule to
give someone a name. My first name is Xiao
Wei. Xiao in Chinese means small. For
example, xiao cat and xiao dog mean
little cat and little dog. Xiao river and
xiao tree mean small river and small tree,
and so on.

is another meaning of xiao; it stands for

the middle name. My name is just the combination of
the last name and the nickname.
