Trang is the Vietnamese version of a Chinese name which is Zhuang or Chuang in Roman script, depending on whether written using the pinyin or Wade-Giles method. It's also found as Chong (Cantonese).
Many Vietnamese surnames are of Chinese origin, having been imposed on the population when Vietnam (or part of it?) was a province of the Chinese Empire.
