the truth of his name
Fukang'an is the name which is transliterated from Chinese Mandarin, "福康安". However, It is not the correct translation. Because He is actually named by his father with two Chinese words combined to a manchu suffix which should be "Fukangga". By the way, it was a popular way to name Manchu people at the mid and late Qing Dynasty.
"Fu"(福) means fortune. "Kang"(康) means safety or health. "ngga" is a suffix of manchu language which is a bound subordinate particle translatable by "s" and also a name suffix of Manchus. So Fukangga means fortunate, Safe and healthy.
Similarly, there are a lot of other examples, like, Nurhaci's grandfather, Giocangga(觉昌安), Girin General Fumingga(富明阿), Kosingga(果兴阿) and so on. So, in fact, this is the way which makes sense of naming Manchu people. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kszkkk (talk • contribs) 03:59, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
I moved Fukang'an to Fuk'anggan. Reasons: 1. There are about 191,000 results if search "Fuk'anggan" on google and 190,000 results of "Fukang'an". 2. This person was Manchu and Fuk'anggan was his name of correct spelling in Manchu anyways. (See the reference and citation in the article)--Šolon (talk) 20:50, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
