Orion of the Name
In the spring and Autumn period,
The daughter of Wu Wangfuchai, Qiongji, lost her father's love after Goujian paid tribute to Sashi. Fucha and Xishi are in Gusutai, Lingyan Mountain, Suzhou City. They are entertained and ignore government affairs. Jonggie found Goujian had ulterior motives, and made several warnings to her father about Goujian. Instead of believing it, he listened to Xishi's words and drove Jongji to a desert island in the unknown lake east of the city of Suzhou to "ponder over the lake".
Later, when the Vietnamese Army soldiers came to Su City, in order to save their lives, Fu Chai prepared to give his daughter as a "gift" to Goujian to plead for peace. When Jongie heard the news, she jumped into the lake and killed herself. Legend has it that people call this lake "Qiongji Lake" in memory of Jongji. The pronunciation of "Qiongji" and "Jinji" in Wu dialect is similar, so "Qiongji Lake" is gradually called "Jinji Lake".
Evolution of development

Twenty-six years (1761) of the Qianlong reign of the Qing Dynasty, the printed and published Annals of Yuanhe County contains: "Jinjinglu, a Jinjing Lake, a Jinji Lake." "Lu" refers to the lake formed after flooding. The name of Jinji Lake may come from the false sound of "Jinjing".
In the 16th year of Guangxu (1890), Li Chaoqiong of Yuanhe Zhixian wrote in his diary about Jinji Lake and the Jinji Lake embankment, later known as "Li Gongdi", which was freely interoperable between "Jinjing Lake" and "Jinji Lake". This shows that in the late Qing Dynasty, the name of Jinji Lake has not been determined. It also shows that Jinji Lake has not been a lake for a long time.
