Korean term or phrase: Hye
Dear Colleague,

I hope you're all right. I would like to know if the name "Hye" (or possibly "Nye") has a specific meaning. It seems to be used in conjunction with "Young" in Korean names. Any guidance and suggestions for further research will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you & kind regards,

Notes to answerer
Asker: Dear Mr. Henderson, I thank you so much for your kind reply. I was hoping for some connection with flower or some other image or character feature normally associated with women in many cultures. I have two follow-up questions: (1) Which part of "Hye-Young" corresponds to "gracious" and which part to "flower"?, and (2) Can you recommend an English-Korean dictionary or reference work with general explanations of this sort? Again, I greatly appreciate your kindness and clarity in responding to my query. In turn, I remain available to you for any consultation in the Spanish language that you might need and will be glad to be of help. Kind regards, JM
