Secondly, Guiqiong people believe in that there is a Bodhisattva watching and guarding every hill, hence the name of a Bodhisattva in each direction enters the scope of naming a person.Thirdly, being named after Buddhist utensils.
      2)Taoism of the Han nationality.

After learning about the birthdate and the eight characters of a horoscope of a delivery woman or child, it can be specifically learned which direction and which one of the five elements or Bodhisattva it corresponds to through the Eight Diagrams calculation and deduction.
