When Confucius' son was born, the ruler of the State of Lu dispatched someone to deliver the gift of a carp, because of which, Confucius named his son Kong [surname] Li [given name, "Carp"], and the style name Boyu, meaning Fish [sent by] the Nobleman* [of Lu]
*ok, that's a pretty lame translation of 魯伯; any suggestions?
btw, the photo includes my mum because she shares her birthday with Confucius
also, both my mother and sister were born on the full moon of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, i.e. Mid-Autumn Festival,
AND, my mother was born in the Dragon Year; how auspicious is that?
