Chinese for a friend

A friend of a friend actually, but hey. I'll paste from the IM conversation:

Ok some girl I know adopted a baby from China. They made her chinese name her middle name. So it's Samantha "Fu" Lynn Turk. Debbie wants her whole name in chinese includning the middle name, or even just Samantha Fu.

While I'd have some idea what to do if it were Japanese, I'm not too well-versed with Chinese names, and really have no idea where to begin with this one. Any Chinese speakers out there have any ideas?

Update: Just received the following detail:

I read the posts and the middle name "Fu" is supposed to mean gift. I think it may also be the calligraphy for gift as well.

Based on that it seems it'd likely be 福, as muckefuck suggested, no?
