Chastity

China zhēn jié
Japan teisetsu
Chastity Vertical Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this would be defined as "The state of being sexually pure" or "chaste." Culturally, this especially applies to young women. 貞節 is not actually far off from our western view on this subject. In Japanese and Korean, this could also be used to express virtue, faithfulness and fidelity.

Chastity

China shā shǐ tí dí
Chastity Vertical Wall Scroll

沙史提迪 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Chastity. This sounds like Chastity but does not mean chastity. I suggest you choose a Chinese word that means chastity instead.

Chastity

Japan chasutitii
Chastity Vertical Wall Scroll

This is the name Chastity written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). If your name is Chastity, I suggest using a word that means Chastity, rather than this transliteration of the name.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Chastity

China zhēn jié
Japan teiketsu / teketsu

This Chinese and Japanese word is often used in variations of the Seven Heavenly Virtues to represent chastity.

Chastity / Pure Heart

Also: Clean / Innocent / Pure
China chún jié
Japan jun ketsu
Chastity / Pure Heart Vertical Wall Scroll

This would be associated with "chastity" but with the direct meaning of clean, innocent, and pure. If you were expressing the idea of a "pure heart" in Chinese, while not literal, this would be the word you would use.

In Japanese, this word is sometimes used to express purity.

In Korean, it describes purity, chastity, virginity, and innocence (basically the same as the Chinese definition).

Extreme Faithfulness

Japan tei retsu
Extreme Faithfulness Vertical Wall Scroll

貞烈 is the Japanese Kanji for, "Extreme Faithfulness."

The first Kanji means "firm adherence to one's principles," chastity (of a woman), chaste, etc.

The second Kanji means ardent, intense, fierce, stern, upright, to give one's life for a noble cause, exploits, achievements, virtuous, and in some contexts, heroic.

Now you get the idea why this refers to someone who is extremely faithful (to a cause, themselves, their religious beliefs, or their philosophy.

Ethics / Ethical / Morality

China dào dé
Japan dou toku
Ethics / Ethical / Morality Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean word can also be defined as "moral principles," morality, ethics, ethical, morals, or virtue.

The first character is the same that is associated with Daoism / Taoism. 道德 is also used to express morality, virtue, or simply morals.


徳There is a slight deviation in the Japanese Kanji form. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people.

Depending on context, this can be translated as modesty, humbleness or humility.

The first character means "modesty" while the second means "yielding." Together it could be stated as "yielding modesty."

Prudence / Considerate

China shèn zhòng
Japan shin chou
Prudence / Considerate Vertical Wall Scroll

慎重 conveys the idea of being considerate, having prudence, and being thoughtful when taking action.

慎重 can also mean cautious, careful, discreet, deliberate, or taking all things into consideration.

The general meaning is shared across languages. However, in Chinese, this is more about prudence, while in Japanese, this is more about being considerate.

Chinese Catholics use this word to represent "prudence" in the list of the Seven Heavenly Virtues.


慎慎 Note: Depending on your choice of Chinese or Japanese calligraphers, the first Kanji will vary slightly. It is technically the same character. Japanese tend to leave a space between the upper and lower portions of this particular Kanji. See sample images to the right.
