Saosin - The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret

Saosin band name idea - Chinese warning signBeware: that in fact is the name of this post hardcore punk band formed in Newport Beach, California.

The ex-lead singer of Saosin, Anthony Green, was the inventor of the name, which comes from Chinese (phonetically xiao xin). The phrase means as much as 'be careful'.

The source is a 15th century poem in which a father warns his sons that, if they marry a woman only for her money, they should not get too attached to their spouse, because the delicate creature may simply die.

According to Anthony Green this poetic warning is meant to make Chinese men aware of the fact that there is no such thing as eternal value.
