Right radical is 'village', right radical is 'good' (良). This character is said to have originally been the proper name for a village in ancient China. It is a simplification of 良人, used by women to address their husbands, which came to mean men in general. This character is a common component of male names. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Husband is man from good village.'
