Can anyone point me to a resource that has the McCune-Reischauer translation of the Korean characters in this list of the Hanza that are used to create names?

Hi. Thanks, that's an interesting site. Unfortunately, I can't read Korean, and the English doesn't give me the information that I need.

Although I thought of a question, not sure if you can answer it. It's my understanding that Korean given names are usually created as a combination of two characters from the list of Hanza. Is this true?

If so, is there any difference between male and female given names? Or can either gender have any combination of characters?

Thanks!

Steve

Sorry to hear that it was not of any help.
Most Korean names are usually created as a combination of two characters from Hanza although more and more people nowadays are choosing "pure Korean" names, meaning there are no equivalent Hanza for the particular names.
Most of the time it is possible to tell the difference between male and female given names, but it is not always the case.
