Part 2

Top 10 Surnames in China

1. 王 (Wáng): 101.5 Million

王 (Wáng) is the most common surname in China and in the world, which represents 101.5 million people. The character 王 means ‘king’. It’s composed of three horizontal lines representing the sky, earth and people, and a vertical line that connects them, indicating they are all ruled by the king.

The family name 王 which has a royal origin is pronounced and spelled differently among various Chinese dialect groups. For Mandarin speakers, the surname is spelled ‘Wang’. Among Cantonese and Hakka speakers, however, this surname is spelled ‘Wong’. Hokkien speakers spell the surname Wang as ”Ong”. Finally, in Teochew, it’s spelled ‘Heng’.

2. 李 (Lǐ): 100.9 Million

李 (Lǐ) represents 100.9 million Chinese people. It used to be the most common surname in China, but it has now been replaced by 王 (Wáng).

The surname 李 (Lǐ), meaning ‘plum’, originated from the plum tree, a totem in ancient China. It was the imperial surname in the Tang dynasty. 李 is generally spelled ’Li’ in Mandarin and Hokkien. In Cantonese and Hakka, it is spelled ‘Lee’ or ’Lei’.

3. 张 (Zhāng): 95.4 Million

The third most common Chinese surname is 张 (Zhāng). The character 张 is in fact a drawing of a bow and arrows. It originated from 挥 (Huī), the grandson of the Yellow Emperor who was bestowed the surname 张 (Zhāng) after he invented the bow and arrow. The surname Zhang can be found in many other languages, for example, ‘Archer’ in English.

张 is pronounced and spelled differently among various Chinese speakers. In Mandarin Pinyin, the surname is spelled ‘Zhang’. In Taiwan, ‘Chang’, the traditional Wade-Giles spelling is used. Cantonese speakers spell the surname ‘Cheung’ or ‘Cheong’, Hakka speakers spell and pronounce it as ‘Chong’.

4. 刘 (Liú): 72.1 Million

6. 杨 (Yáng): 46.2 Million

The sixth popular Chinese family name 杨 (Yáng) originally refers to ‘sun rising over poplar forest’, an ancient Totem from the Yang Kingdom founded during the 8th-9th century B.C.

The eighth most common last name in China is 赵 (Zhào). It originated from the ancient kingdom Zhao. 赵 (Zhào) was the surname of the Song Dynasty royalty (year 960-1279). As a result, it appeared first in the famous Chinese book ‘The Hundred Family Surnames (百家姓 Bai Jia Xing) ’ which listed the top 100 Chinese surnames at that time.

After authorities refuse to close Bangsar school with two Covid-19 cases, parents keep all students home

Friday, 09 Oct 2020 03:15 PM MYT  

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 9 — Parents of SK Bangsar students have taken matters into their own hands and kept their children at home after authorities saw no need to close the school despite two confirmed Covid-19 cases there.

According to Berita Harian, no student attended the school today.

The head of the Parent-Teacher Association Mohd Yazid Mohd Yasin said the school administration has confirmed a 100-per-cent absentee rate today.

Yazid said the school has an enrolment of nearly 800 students for the morning session.

“Yesterday, the Health Ministry began swab-testing students and teachers present. Today, the health officials will conduct more tests in areas specified.

“All students and parents must undergo the test as notified but this could involve even more people given that the two students with Covid-19 were involved in a mass performance,” he was quoted as saying in the BH report.

Yesterday, it was reported that a Primary Four and a Primary Five student at the school were positive for Covid-19.

Despite the confirmation, Yazid reportedly said the same day that there has not been any instruction to close the school.

Malaysia is facing a third wave of Covid-19 infections, which saw cases rise exponentially since last month to hit a high of 691 last Tuesday.
