- In this paper, we investigate name network based on complex network theory. We study statistical properties of the network and find that name network show some important characteristics: not only small word effect, scale-free and the power-law distribution, but also disassortative mixing. The origin and formation of such properties are investigated from a macroscopic Chinese culture and philosophy perspective. It is interesting to find Chinese culture and philosophy may shape the formation and structure of names. According to the study, we can give some insight of names. Furthermore, understanding name network can help to knowledge Chinese culture. The hub nodes in the network show close relationship with Chinese culture. Learning the hub nodes, which effectively explain the origin of names.
