古时,一个男孩子到了二十岁,就要用发簪把头发束起来,还要戴上一顶帽子,表示已是成年人,成年后的男子称“夫”。“夫”字还包含着受别人尊敬的意思。
夫 is formed by adding a horizontal stroke above “person”(人), yet this horizontal stroke does not mean “head of the person”. Rather, it means the hairpin in a man’s hair. In ancient times, when a boy reached the age of 20, he had to bind his hair with a hairpin in a ritual initation, to be considered a grown up man. Therefore, the hairpin is the sign of “a grownup man ”,and this is also the original meaning of “夫” .
