Li Na ( (traditional Chinese: 李訥; simplified Chinese: 李讷; pinyin: Lĭ Nà; born 1940), or Li Ne , is the daughter of Mao Zedong and his fourth wife Jiang Qing, and their only child together. Her surname is Li rather than Mao, because her father used the pseudonym "Li Desheng" (traditional Chinese: 李得勝; simplified Chinese: 李得胜) for a period of time during the Chinese Civil War.

The names of Li Na and her sister Li Min come from Book 4 of the Analects of Confucius: "ne yu yan er min yu xing" (讷于言而敏于行, meaning slow in speech and earnest in conduct).

Li Na was born in Yan'an in 1940. She graduated from Beijing University in 1966. After graduation, she worked in PLA Daily.
