Yong (Chinese: 勇; pinyin: ng; WadeGiles: yung) is the Chinese word for "courage" or "brave" as an adjective; "soldier" as a noun.

Yong (Chinese: 永; pinyin: yǒng; Wade–Giles: yung) can also mean "permanence". It is also unique in that the single character contains eight strokes common to Chinese characters. An explanation for how to write the eight strokes is found in the Eight Principles of Yong.

Yong (Chinese: 用; pinyin: yòng; Wade–Giles: yung) means "use" or "function." In Neo-Confucianism, this concept is often associated with Ti, which means "substance" or "body."

Yong (Chinese: 雍; pinyin: yòng; Wade–Giles: yung) was the capital of Qin (state), located in modern Fengxiang County, founded in 677 BCE and moved to Yueyang 櫟陽 in 383 BCE.

Yong is also a pronunciation variant of the Chinese surname Yang (楊/杨)

Famous quotes containing the word yong:

    Hail, comly and clene,
    Hail, yong child!
    Hail, maker, as I meene,
    Of a maden so milde!
    —Unknown. The Second Shepherd’s Play (l. 6–8)

    And I was yong and ful of ragerye,
    Stibourne and strong and joly as a pie:
    How coude I daunce to an harpe smale,
    And singe, ywis, as any nightingale,
    Whan I hadde dronke a draughte of sweete win.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
