Chinese Names
There are hundreds of surnames in China; Zhang, Wang, Li, Zhao and Liu are the most popular. Most Chinese names have three characters, the first being the family name and the last two given names. Occasionally, one may run into four-character names, and you can be sure that the first two characters are the family name. Women keep their own family names after marriage.
