Huang Yueh Ying is her name in ROTK game. Never find more information about her so far either..

It is only mentioned that she was from the house of Huang. It's very rare that the full name of female figures of the era will be listed in historical records. Yue Ying is simply a fictitious name created by Koei, I think.
Otherwise known as Wang Ping (Zijun)

Yeah.. only someone very important like Qin Liangyu perhaps.
I become wonder, was Lady Zhen full name was really Zhen Ji? Lady Wu name was really Wu Oguothai? And do someone know what was the full name of Lady Mi and Lady Gan (Liu Bei's wives), Lady Wang (Beauty Wang) the Empress during Emperor Ling, Empress Fu (Daughter of Fu Wan) who killed by Cao Cao?

Thanks heaps. I think in the novel Zhen Ji's name was Zhenji. The absence of a gap is intentional.

I think in the novel, Zhen Ji was simply called Lady Zhen. You're probably thinking of Lady Zhurong, with the space issue. I can't think of a time Lady Zhen is ever called Zhen Ji or Zhenji in the novel.

I don't think Koei created it. I think her name comes from some folktale or other, just like Sun Shang Xiang. Lady Wu would have the details.

It might depend on which version you have read. At the moment I'm reading the modern spelling, but before I have only read the wade-gillis spelling. In the wade-gillis version I definatly remember her being refered to as Lady Chenji and I assumed it would be the same in the modern spelling. :?

When she appears in chapter 33 of the Wade-Giles translation, she is simply referred to as a lady from the Chen family. Perhaps later on in the book she gets "Lady Chenji", but I have the sneaking suspicion that she's just called "Lady Chen" or "Empress Chen".
