- Mistress Zhang: Her surname before marriage is Qiao and her late husband’s surname is Zhang I decided to go with Mistress Zhang
- Jianghu: literal translation is mountains and rivers but in actual fact they are more like the martial world society and the group of people who operate outside of mainstream society
- Celestial/deity & ancestors: they are phonetically the same
- Zhi in stop and Zhi is finger: Both stop and finger are made up of 2 characters (the closest thing in english are english syllables but they each have their own meaning as well), but they both contain a character that is phonetically the same. There are a lot of play of words in this drama to try and lighten it up but hard to understand in english.
