Hanja for Cimi: 川 brook, 江 river

river

川 brook 천, 江 river 강

According to Naver Dictionary, 천 川 is a stream, creek, or brook and 강 江 is a river.  Put ice 冰 and 川 together and you get glacier 冰川.  Incheon in South Korea is 仁川.  Sichuan Province in China is 四川. Makes it easy for me to remember the sound of 川 천 cheon.

Han River is 한강 hangang.  Gangnam  강남 district in Seoul, South Korea is 江南.
