Tamrataksa became the dominant text in the Rattanakosin period, guiding naming tradition, most notably used for naming King Rama IV's children. This sample chart demonstrates how King Rama V's name was created utilising the simplified chart. Born on a Tuesday, King Rama V-Otherwise known as King Chulalongkorn- is associated with a mythological animal, the lion (highlighted in yellow); and to further ensure strength in his name, a set of letters associated with a desired trait were given as options to be included in the name (highlighted in King Chulalongkorn’s princely name below the chart).
