Famous People in History
The 21st most common last name in China.
There are two main sources of the Liang last name. 1) descendents of Bo Yi, the flood fighting
helper of Xia Yu. During
Zhou Xuan Wangs reign, Bo Yi was ordered to conquer the west. Unfortunately, he failed and
was killed. His five sons vowed to avenge and asked Xuan Wang to allow them to conquer the west.
Xuan Wang approved, and gave them 7,000 well-trained soldiers. The five brothers were victorious
over their avengers. Xuan Wang awarded land to the five brothers. The second son, Kang, was
given land in Xia Yang of Liang Shan (Han Cheng in Shanxi province), and established the Liang
kingdom. In 641 B.C. Qin Mu Wang eliminated Liang and the
people began to bear the name of Liang afterwards. 2) The son of
Zhou Ping Wang, Ji Tang, was awarded the land of Nan (south) Liang. His descendents also
have the last name Liang.
