爸爸 = Bà ba – dad, a commonly used expression among children and adult to call their Dad.
Do you know:
Father’s day is on August 8 in Taiwan. Why? It is because the pronunciation of number “8”= “bā” in Mandarin Chinese sounds like “Bà” = Dad. They only have different tones. August 8th is “bā yuè bā rì,” and people would say “bā bā” – eight/eight and it sounds like “Bà ba” – dad. So it becomes the day for Dads in Taiwan, The Republic of China!
