The names of these temples are different in terms of naming sources and translation methods, reflecting the unique characteristics of Thai Zen Buddhism. This article uses the method of document analysis to sort out the history of temples and compare the meaning of Chinese names and Thai names. After preliminary research, it is found that the naming of Thai-Chinese Temple in Thailand can be divided into three periods. These three periods are closely related to the Thai royal family and many great Zen masters. The name of the Thai-Chinese Temple in Thailand has a different origin from the name of the Buddhist temple in China. The naming of modern Thai-Chinese Temple is more diversified, but it also has lost its inheritance of history.
