The treecreepers are known as 旋木雀 xuán-mù-què 'tree-circling-finch' in Chinese. què in Chinese originally referred to the sparrows (Passeridae) but later came to be used for a broad range of (mainly) passerine birds. In ornithological usage it refers equally to sparrows and finches (Fringillidae).

The name 旋木雀 xuán-mù-què was used in the first ornithological list containing Chinese bird names, Chinese Birds of 1927 (35), which drew on the earlier work Zoological Nomenclature of 1923.

旋木雀 xuán-mù-què is not exactly a household name in Chinese; many dictionaries do not carry the word at all.

The term Шувуухай shuvuukhai here refers to a small bird. Шувуухай shuvuukhai is an old term used to refer to a number of generally exotic small species, including the sunbirds (Nectariniidae), the broadbills (Eurylaimidae), and the bee-eaters (Meropidae), as well as the Wren and the Treecreeper. In the traditional script there are two alternative spellings: sibaoqai and sibagoqai.
