月 contains too much about Chinese cultureAncient Chinese believed that it was the Heaven and the Earth who had created life. The living body contains solar elements and lunar ones at the same time which must go in balance so that we are in good health. For this reason our ancestors used 月(the Moon)for word-construction when concerning the human body. For examples:
脑(brain), 脸(face), 肩膀(shoulder),臂胳膊(arms), 脖(neck), 筋脉(blood vessels), 脚(foot), 趾(toe), 肤(skin), 脾胃肝肾肠肺(the internal organs),  胖(fat),  and so on.

Why two ‘Moons’ make one ‘friend’
In Chinese 朋 means ‘friend’ which contains two Moons. Why?
If Tom and Smith are closed friends who always stay together for playing or business, we usually describe this kind of relationship as following: You can not seperate the shadow from the body in the moonlight sicne they have ‘sticked’ to each other! (That is the meaning of the idiom 形影不离)

Why ‘two-drop-water’ brings you a sense of coldnessIn winter we have less rainfall. So one of the three streams of 江 may become dry. In most cases the ‘two-drop-water’ within Chinese characters tells you that the word has something to do with ‘coldness’. For examples:
冰(ice), 冷(cold),凉(cool),  凛冽(cold (wind)) ,  凌(ice  in the river),  冻(freezing),  凄凉(not prosperity),
