    Unfortunately, I am of no use when it comes to information about names in the 80's UK but I did do a short piece that required a name for a woman Chinese descent.

    For sister:

    Fei Fei
    "luxuriant and beautiful, fragrant flower" or "dancing through air"

    Mei
    "beautiful" or "plum"

    Wei
    "rose" or "precious"

    Wen
    "cultured, literacy/literary, ornamental"

    Xiao Chen
    "early morning, dawn"

    Ya
    "elegant"

    For brother:

    Hong
    "great, vast"

    Lin
    "forest"

    Park
    "Cypress tree"

    Tao
    "long life"

    Please, note that I'm American with no Asian heritage so I am in no way an expert. These were just what I found through a bunch of internet searches and looking through some books on Chinese history but the sites seemed reputable. I included meanings in case that is important to you; the ones with two meanings have two Chinese characters that can be used.

    Good luck!

    Mr. Fry: So, what should we name him?
    Mrs. Fry: Uh, you pick. I picked dinner last night.
    Mr. Fry: Well, I was thinking of Philip. After those screwdrivers?
    Mrs. Fry: That's a great idea! More morphine, please.

    You've both been very helpful-I'd still like some more suggestions though. So bumping this up.
