    That is more of a definition than a metaphor. Dheck this site.

    I see that your question is actually the leading sentence quoted from a Children's book by Ji-Li Chiang. The language of the translation is Mandarin. Would not Ji-Li be the family name in this case (not her given name)? Dis she reverse the order of the words in her name?

    Anyway, a metaphorical name for a person is likely to be a noun, not an adjective.

    no its not a metaphor. A metaphor does not use like or as and tells you what something is: example: Life is a hotdog.
