Reflection of Eduction level of Age
Generally speaking , single character is easy to be same to the others, hard to push characteristic forward, but easy to naming.Double characters is reverse.Statistics results display, people born before government foundation of 1949 naming one character just occupy 6.502%.17 years before Culture Revolution,naming one character occupy 8.983%.
Dramatically,naming single character name ratio leap to 27.810%.
After ending of Culture Revolution 1976 to 1982,this ratio is up to 32.494%.
Children's name actually restricted by parents' education level. In other words,the children born between 1966 and 1982,their single character name ratio boost,is hugely related to their parents' education level(both contains not enough Culture Education and lack of characteristic seeking).
The group born in the late 90s last century, single character ratio decreases in large volumn.
Today, absolutly, double characters name has become the only choose to namingby large majority of new parents.
It definitely is a result of characteristic seeking,also is one of age progress.
