Meaning & Origins

Chinese 安: from the name of the ancient country known in China as AnXi, located in present-day Uzbekistan. Traditional accounts record that the legendary emperor Huang Di (2697–2595 BC) had a grandson named An (the character for ‘peace’) who moved to the far west to establish AnXi, losing contact with the Middle Kingdom. When the people of AnXi decided to return to China during the Han dynasty (206 BC–220 AD), they adopted their tribal name, An, as their surname.
