Also a surname?[edit]

Is 蘭 also a surname, as dictionaries from Hong Kong and Taiwan indicate? 20:29, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes. -- A-cai 00:34, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Do you know why most lists of Chinese surnames I've looked at don't list this name (although I think they have it as part of a 2-character compound surname)? 02:12, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure that this surname is all that common in modern times. Guoyu Cidian mentions a Lan Guang (蘭廣) that lived in the Han Dynasty. -- A-cai 02:25, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

My surname is this 兰(simplified in chinese), very rare surname, hard to find
