The Vietnamese Language
Vietnamese is a hybrid language influenced by Chinese, French, and now English. Other than Vietnam of course, it is also spoken in Australia and the US, Texas in particular. Its modern written form most closely resembles French. As it applies to given, middle, and surnames, Vietnamese words are literal in meaning often referring to beauty, strength, or other characteristics parents wish children to possess.
Creation of the Vietnamese
Vietnamese are strong-willed children of a dragon-King from the sea named Lac Long Quan ("Dragon Lord of Lac") and a beautifully young-looking but immortal mountain fairy named Au Co. After killing several monsters that had terrorized both land and sea, it was Lac Long who taught Viet people to tattoo their bodies with designs of monsters and paint fishing boats with pairs of eyes on both sides to deter monsters from bothering them further. One such monster was a gigantic black bird. One day, while exploring the seashore with her father, this massive bird frightened Au Co. Attempting to escape, she transformed into a crane. Lac Long saw her in danger, so he hurled a rock at the monster which fell to the earth, dead. Stopping to see who saved her, Au Co turned back into a fairy and fell instantly in love with Lac Long. A year after marriage, she bore not a baby but a sac which continued to grow for 7 days until bursting and releasing 100 eggs. Each hatched a baby boy thereby being the source of the 100 Vietnamese family names. And although the dragon and fairy later separated with each taking 50 children, Au Co settled in her beloved mountains of Vietnam where she raised young, intelligent, and strong leaders. The eldest became the first King of Vietnam. And he was succeeded by 18 Hung Kings.
