Meaning & History

Means "sunny side of the Shen River", from Chinese 沈 (shěn) referring to the Hun River (previously known as the Shen) and 阳 (yáng) meaning "light, sun". The name is derived from the belief that a river's north bank is more angled toward direct sunlight, thus being considered the "sunny" side. This is the name of a city in China.
