It is believed that the first person to call the place “Chine” was during the year of 995. To us, the term “Chine” is a portmanteau of the character Chen (pronounced “knee”) from television series “Crisis”.
The name China is also a portmanteau of the character Chen who’s part of the Chinese empire. We think the word itself is the portmanteau of “Cheng.” Like many of the Chinese language words, the name is derived from characters in the Chinese characters.
We think China is a portmanteau of the character Chen, which is pronounced knee. The word is derived from characters in the Chinese characters.

The history of the word is convoluted, so we can’t really tell the story of how it got its name, other than to say that the word apparently was borrowed from a dialect of Chinese called Cantonese. We didn’t know this when we posted this post, but we think it’s likely that the word originated with a different Cantonese dialect.
According to Wikipedia, the earliest use of the word was in the 19th century, so that makes this a bit of a stretch, but the word probably originated in the early 19th century. There are also several different spellings of the word Chine which sound more like “Chinese.
Another possible origin is from a more specific Chinese dialect called Ch’ien, which is also used to refer to the Chinese people in general. A few words that have a Ch’ien origin are: Ch’ien (熊), Ch’ien-tzu (熊天張), and Ch’ien-ch’i (熊天知).
While there are many theories about the origin of the word china, I’m not sure if it is directly related to the fact that someone might use the term chinese to describe their hometown or the fact that the word was used to describe the Chinese people by the English early 1900s.
Chien is a reference to the Chinese character for “peace”. Some believe the Chinese word itself is a misspelling of Chinese meaning “peace”. Others believe that the name of the city in the movie, “Chien-tzu” is a tongue twister. Chien-tzu is the name of the main character in the movie.
Apparently, it means “peace.” You can hear this same phrase in the movie Chien-tzu, which features the Chinese hero Tzu Chi in the lead role. “Tzu chi” is a word that is used for a variety of things. For instance, a child can say “Tzu chi” when talking to adults.
