Meaning & Origins

Chinese 韩: from the name of a state of Han, which existed during the early part of the Western Zhou dynasty (1122–771BC), in present-day Shaanxi province. This was the fief of a younger brother of Cheng Wang, second king of the Zhou dynasty. The state of Han was later annexed by the state of Jin, but the area was enfeoffed by the Jin ruler to Wu Zi, a descendant of Wen Wang. Wu Zi's descendants eventually adopted the name of the fief as their surname.
