General

Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Pinyin reflects Mandarin pronunciation; for some dialect names, it is no more than a polite fiction. Korean glosses are tentative.

The general name for the herons in Chinese is . The character is made up of the phonetic on top, and the character niǎo or 'bird' underneath. Herons are also known as 鹭鸶 lùsī, which dates back to Classical Chinese. Sometimes the form 鹭鹚 lùcí is also found. The term 鹭鸶 lùsī may also be narrowly applied to the egrets.

In Taiwan, all ardeids are still known as , including bitterns, which are known as 小鹭 xiǎo-lù 'small heron'. However, Mainland ornithologists have come up with a new name for the small herons and bitterns: yan yán, sometimes written yan. These are simplifications of the character yan, which is an old name for the Chinese Pond Heron Ardeola bacchus and given the reading jiān by dictionaries. Its ancientness can be judged by the fact that even in the 说文解字 shuōwén jiězì dictionary of the 2nd century AD it is described as an old name for the 䴔䴖 jiāoqīng (Chinese Pond Heron).

As a simplification, yan is rather incongruous in retaining the obsolete radical yan on the left while simplifying the bird radical on the right. Current normal practice, both Simplified and Traditional, substitutes the radical for yan, i.e., in the Traditional characters and yan in the Simplified characters. While read yán by ornithologists, the character yan has also been read as jiān (standard reading), qiān (wagtail), and zhān (hawk).

In the Mainland ornithological nomenclature, night-herons belonging to Gorsachius have been systematised as yè-yán 'night-bitterns' and bitterns belonging to Ixobrychus as wěi-yán 'reed bitterns'.

CULTURAL

During the Ming and Qing Dynasties in China, the Egret (鹭鸶 lùsī) was depicted in 'Mandarin Squares' (known as 补子 bǔzi) attached to official uniforms of the high-ranking bureaucrats. It was the insignia of rank for Grade Six of civilian official.
