Yong (Chinese: 勇; pinyin: yǒng; Wade-Giles: 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)
