- A transliteration of any of a number of Chinese characters properly represented as having one of four tones, mīn, mín, mǐn, or mìn.
English transcriptions of Chinese speech often fail to distinguish between the critical tonal differences employed in the Chinese language, using words such as this one without the appropriate indication of tone.
Common Germanic *minaz, from Indo-European *meino-, from *mei (locative form of *me- ‘me’) + *-no- (adjectival suffix). Cognate with Old Frisian mīn, Old Saxon mīn (Dutch mijn), Old High German mīn (German mein), Old Norse mínn (Swedish min), Gothic 𐌼𐌴𐌹𐌽𐍃.
