Adding Korean and Vietnamese equivalents surnames[edit]

I think adding Korean and Vietnamese equivalents when available to Chinese surnames. For an example: Zhao (pinyin: zhào, Wade-Giles: Chao, simplified Chinese: 赵, traditional Chinese: 趙, Vietnamese Triệu, Hangul (Korean) 조) will expand the readers understanding that these equivalents do exist between these 3 cultures —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.180.1.214 (talkcontribs)

Needs reorganizing[edit]

At the moment, the different sections don't appear to be well-organized with some repetition on various section. For example the sections on "Distribution of surnames", "Common Chinese surnames" covers basically the same topic (both on the commonest name in various regions) and should be rewritten or perhaps merged as sub-sections of a larger topic. The section "Surnames at present" also covers some of the same ground (commonest surnames), and since the other two sections are also basically about surname at present the titling of different sections is just a bit odd. That section also dealt with historical reason for disappearance on names which is a separate topic from surnames at present. I'm not sure how to organize it but someone should give it a go.

In front[edit]

Shouldn't it be noted that Chinese surnames are written before a person's given name to avoid confusion? Bataaf van Oranje (Prinsgezinde) (talk) 11:14, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
