Re: Surnames that mean Moon
in reply to a message by Jim Young
"Yue" might or might mean "moon" in Chinese. But as the surname, "moon" is not known as a Chinese surname since antiquity. But there's is an ancient non-Chinese tribe who's name is "Yue shi" in Chinese, which when translated using the characters = "The Moon clan", who might or might not have used the tribe's name as a surname when assimilated into Chinese society.
