Dad was going on a business trip and I decided to go with him because I was on holidays. I was surprised by this because having the responsibility to name a child is quite important. I wanted to take it seriously.

Beau offered the name Eliza to her first client, based on the classic character Eliza Doolittle, who is a quick-witted and strong heroine unafraid to stand up for herself. The 19-year-old asked the woman to identify a number of qualities she wanted her daughter to have.

After she got back from her vacation, Beau, who can read, write, and speak Chinese after studying it at school for seven years, realized there wasn't a baby-naming service exclusively geared toward the Chinese population.

The second thing she did was persuade her father, Paul, a successful businessman who runs an online teddy bear store, to give her a loan of ÂĢ1500 (about $3000).

After getting his approval, Beau hired a web designer and used the rest of the money to run ads on WiiChat, which is China's biggest social media platform.
