In the movie Kung Fu Panda, what does Tai Lung mean in English? if it means anything at all?
I'm Chinese, and I got that Oogway is Chinese for turtle, and Shifu was Chinese for master, but I never understood what Tai Lung, the name of the snow leopard in the movie, meant in English. Does it mean something that I missed or does Tai Lung not mean anything at all?

Well, the name Long (I know, it's spelled differently) means Dragon, and Tai can mean "great or extreme"
so maybe it's a little reference to him wanting to be the dragon warrior.

I know this is like, REALLY late. LOL, but I'm Chinese and I know Tai Lung is the phonetic spelling for a wild cat. I forget which cat, but it's a more plausible answer than the previous one because each person's name is either based off of their status (shi fu) or animal (oogway)
