 Much of this information comes from a great book called <<​常用汉字部首:​ The most common Chinese Radicals>>​. Other sources include Contemporary Chinese 1: character book, [[http://​chinese-tools.com|chinese-tools.com]] and [[http://​yellowbridge.com|yellowbridge.com]] as well discussions with my Chinese teacher and other friends here in China. Also, a big thanks to ldolse for his radical dictionary and flash cards, which were hugely helpful in putting this, much smaller, list together. Do check it out for much more extensive information on radicals. Much of this information comes from a great book called <<​常用汉字部首:​ The most common Chinese Radicals>>​.

-While I [//Ckatt//] feel that these are the most common ​name you should keep in mind that they are not the only names. Some bushou have academic common names that I only found in books, such as “er dao pang”, but people here in China have told me that no one calls it this, and “zou er pang” is what is commonly used.+While I [//Ckatt//] feel that these are the most common ​names you should keep in mind that they are not the only names.

 Also some bushou have flexible position and flexible names. Yu 雨 for example could be placed on the left and would be referred to as yu zi pang, if on the side or yu zi tou if on the top, however it would likely just be referred to as yu if on the bottom. Xin 心 on the other hand would be called xin zi di on the bottom and just xin on top. I have not made cards for all possible names of all the radicals just the one where there is a clear or important distinction. As such some cards are included with no common name, mainly because they we listed in<<​常用汉字部首>>​and I am assuming the author knows what he is doing, others I have added myself because I have seen them recur often in the characters I am learning. Think od this list as a starting point, once you know the basic rules of the nomenclature identifying the common name of most radicals is quite easy if you know how to say the standalone character. Also some bushou have flexible position and flexible names.
