Funü shuangming ji 婦女雙名記 "Double names of women" is a handbook on double names of women compiled by the Ming-period 明 (1368-1644) scholar Li Zhaoheng 李肇亨 (1592-1664), courtesy name Huijia 會嘉, style Kexue 珂雪, Zui'ou 醉鷗 or Shuangxi Diaoshi 爽溪釣士, Buddhist religious name Tangying 堂瑩.

His handbook is based on older collections to be found in Wang Shizhen's 王世貞 (1526-1590) Yanzhou zhiyan 弇州卮言, Zhang Ruifu's 張睿父 Langya daizui bian 瑯琊代醉編 or Chen Wugong's 陳無功 Xixing manlu 析醒漫錄. Li Zhaoheng assembled the double names of 67 women through history, like Yingying 鶯鶯 or Yanyan 燕燕, and wrote down their history and the sourced he had used.
