: Can anyone please tell me the origin of the last name Wong. Thanks.
Wong ist transcribed from Cantonese. There are two surnames, that are spoken in the same way.
The names i mean are in Mandarin-chinese:
- Wang2 (means king)
(same link as in helena's msg.)
- Huang2 (means yellow)
But in Cantonese, both words sound the same ("Wong").
