Chinese term or phrase: ying xi an
this is a name. I am wondering if it means anything.
Joe Mind
英喜安???
Explanation:
Joe, It is very hard to tell what they are if you write the sound only, because the tones and characters can mean many different things.

By pure guess, I wonder if the characters that you are trying to spell would be:

英喜安

英=Ying(1), a rare Last Name
喜=Xi(3), Happy; to be fond of
安=An(1), Peace; tranquility
