The thirteenth most popular surname in China.
There are two origins of the surname Hu. 1) Emperor
Zhou Wen Wang awarded ancient Emperor Yaos
descendent Wei Man as the Duke of Chen, known as Chen Hu Gong. His descendents adopted the middle name
of Duke Chen as their surname. 2) During the
Zhou Dynasty, there were two Hu Kingdoms. The first kingdom was in the east of Le River in Henan,
with the surname Ji. The second kingdom was in the town of Fu Yang in
Anhui, with the surname Gui. Both of these Hu Kingdoms were destroyed by the Chu Kingdom, during the Chun Qiu Dynasty. Their descendents assumed the surname Hu to commemorate their old kingdoms.
