    Chinese think the number 8 will bring them luck so they like it also the more 8s the better and if you want to end it end it with a 0.

    so like e.g 8880 is a preferred name for most chinese as it will bring them wealth and good fortune the zero symbolises rebirth. so you cannot start it with 0 that is not sort after its better to end with 0.

    Numbers 3 2 are not preferred and number 4 is considered bad luck they do not like this number at all.

    9 7 are liked very much.
