It is a good name though it sounds a little bit masculine to me. if you are a strong-willed lady, the name then is not any better than that one. you have made a wise choice already. congratulations.

hi hivickyhi - (well that was fun to say)  Thanks for your suggestions, but the sound of the last two characters is not important, the meaning is. I want the meaning to match my real name's meaning, which is "willpower, inner strength, perseverance, etc.." that sort of thing. But thank you for giving it so much thought for me.

deepmemory - Thank you. Many people say it sounds masculine, but many also say it's not a bad thing, especially with Xin. I appreciate your input. :)

Simba - You are always so supportive! Thank you! But remember, I am trusting your judgment, Old Friend. So if you reconsider or think of anything new, please be honest with me about it, you can PM me anytime.

Like I said, if there is another character with a similar meaning to Yi, I would consider changing it. If not, perhaps I will settle into my new ... uh... manly name.
I am not rich.  :L
