Hello. Is the meaning of the word 'surname' or is it a common surname in China? Thanks in advance. --Connel MacKenzie 20:00, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

It is a surname. I duplicated the style of the entry for , which is also a surname, and does not mean 'surname' either. I have no idea how this is handled elsewhere, as I have just stumbled here from wikipedia.--Chinesesurname 20:08, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for entering them. The majority of CJKV entries we have were entered by a wayward bot User:NanshuBot and most have not yet been reformatted.
For the "common meanings" lines like that, the entry normall should say something like "A common surname of Chinese origin."
