I'm pretty sure "Ng" is the Cantonese equivalent of Mandarin's "Wu." As for Ngo, I think that's actually Vietnamese, but I'm not sure. I got some friends and neighbors with that last name, and I think they're half Viet half Chinese. Darn, my mom told me about that name before.
And oh yeah, Nguyen is the most common Viet last name. We just said it's about 50% of the population.
yeah thats right....."NGO" is "WU" in chinese
and the last name nguyen does constitute a little more than half of entire
vienamese population in vietnam
vietnamese have some really weird last name where in chinese theres nobody have that kind of name
for example "NGHIEM" in chinese is "GUANG"....guang for guangdong's "GUANG".....guangdong is a province in china
"TRUNG" in chinese is "ZHONG".....means loyal
also among chinese theres no one have that kind of last name
"THUC" is "SHU" in chinese.......a non-existen last name among chinese....it means a dynasty during three kingdom period
"BUI" is "BEI" in chinese.....means shell etc etc
"BANH" is "BIN" in chinese.....means biscuits
"CHE" is "ZHI" in chinese.....means system
"DANG" is "YANG" in chinese.....means shape.....also its not the usual "YANG" among chinese.....its a totally different word which among chinese....no one have that as a last name.
"CU" is "GOU" in chinese.....means some kind of aspen
"DAM" is "GAN" in chinese.....means venture
"DAO" is "XIAO" in chinese.....means yeast
"VANH" is "CI" in chinese......means to support
"THIEU" is "SHAO" in chinese......means less......few
"TANG" is "SANG" in chinese.....means mulberry tree
"PHUNG" is "FANG" in chinese.....means release
as you can see all those vietnamese last name above are either non-existen or very rare last name among chinese population
those are unique vietnamese last name even though theres chinese writing
its unique coz no chinese have that kind of last name
you can even translate korean or japanese name into vietnamese
"HWANGBO IL SUNG" in korean is "HOANGPHU NHAT THANH" in vietnamese
"SUZUKI ICHIRO" in japanese is "LINH MOC NHAT LANG" etc etc
can anyone post a link where i can find all vietnamese last name ?????
i am sure only just a few last names.....the most notable chinese last names such as "LI"....."LIU"....."ZHANG"....."CHEN"....."WU"....."ZHENG"......"CAI"....."HUANG"
can be found among all groups.....korean.....viet and chinese
and among all vietnamese last names.....i am sure some of them cant be find among chinese population such as ones i have mentioned above
and same with chinese last name vice versa
if you want to find vietnamese last names in chinese character
its a nom look up
you can find chinese last name in vietnamese......just type in chinese
purnounciation in roman spell then you can see all on the list
if you try to find vietnamese last name in chinese it will be a little difficult
as you know vietnamese word have tongue to it.....such as ^....~....."."......
you can not just type in someone's last name in vietnamese and then expect to find the character in chinese without know the tongue of the word
so plz do help me get source for all vietnamese last name
