Name: 샤이니 (SHINee)
Meaning: A combination of the English word "shine" and the suffix "ee", which is added to the receiver of a verb/action (i.e., trainee - someone that receives training). Together, it would literally mean "one who receives the shine", or better yet, "one who receives the light". Very suitable for our superstar boys, yes?
