Top radical is 'self/nose' (自), the bottom radical is a character only found in Chinese that meaning 'give' but also has meanings of 'prominent'. Thus, 'prominent nose'. Henshall suggests taking the bottom radical as 'field' (田) and two 'tens' (十), and as a mnemonic:  'Own nose follows trail through twenty fields.'
