General

The Alcidae in general are known as 海雀 hǎi-què ('sea sparrows' or 'sea finches') in Chinese. The name has been borrowed from Japanese 海雀 umi-suzume 'sea sparrow'.

The more traditional name 善知鸟 shàn-zhī-niǎo 'good tidings bird' is not used in Chinese ornithological names but is a commonly found name for the Rhinoceros Auklet.
