There must be at least close to 30 millions of the Viet around the world who have the same last name. Is there a meaning to it? Why do they look so much alike?

About 30 to 40 million people have the last name Nguyen.

About 5 to 10 million people have the last name Tran.

Wasn't Nguyen the surname of the last king of Vietnam? People changed their last names to Nguyen even when they were really Ly's, Tran's so that's why there's so many.
