Meaning of the name Min

There are multiple origins and translations for the name Min:

1. Chinese name-giving (敏) - "sharp-witted, clever; fast, quick, agile, smart; bright" or of (民) - "people" or of (慜) - "smart; bright." or of (民) - "people".

2. Turkic only name-giving component - "birthmark" in the sense of - "happy" or comes from мын [myn] - "thousand". In Turkic peoples mole on the body is a sign of happiness.

3. Tatar and Bashkir (Turkic) name-giving interpretation - "my; me".

4. Korean (민) from Chinese (敏) means - "of clever people".

5. Min is an Ancient Egyptian God whose cult originated in pre-dynastic times. He was represented in many different forms, but was often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail. As Khem or Min, he was the God of reproduction; as Khnum, he was the creator of all things, "the maker of gods and men". As a God of fertility, he was shown as having black skin. His cult was strongest in Coptos and Akhmim (Panopolis), where in his honor great festivals were held celebrating his “coming forth” with a public procession and presentation offerings. His other associations include the eastern desert and links to the God Horus. Flinders Petrie excavated two large statues of Min at Qift which are now in the Ashmolean Museum and it is thought by some that they are pre-dynastic. Although not mentioned by name a reference to 'he whose arm is raised in the East' in the Pyramid Texts is thought to refer to Min. His importance grew in the Middle Kingdom when he became even more closely linked with Horus as the deity Min-Horus. By the New Kingdom he was also fused with Amen in the deity Min-Amen-kamutef (Min-Amen - bull of his mother). Min's shrine was crowned with a pair of bull horns.

6. Burmese name, interpretation - "king"

7. Vietnamese name (Mình) - "body"
