蔡; Cài

Cài (Simplified and Traditional Chinese: 蔡) is a Chinese surname that derives from the name of the ancient Cai state. It's regionally more common in China's Fujian Province and in countries settled by ethnic Chinese from that province than in China as a whole. The surname is the 34th most common surname in China[1], but the 9th most common in Taiwan, where it is usually romanized as Tsai[2], and the 8th most common in Singapore, where it is usually romanized as Chua[3].

The Cais are said to be the descendants of the 5th son of King Wu of the Zhou Dynasty (9th century BC256 BC), Ji Du. Ji Du was awarded the title of marquis (hóu) of the State of Cai (centered on what is now Shangcai, Zhumadian, Henan, China), and he was known as Cai Shudu ("Uncle Cai"). Together with Guan Shu and Huo Shu, they were known as the Three Guards. When King Wu died, his son King Cheng was too young and his uncle, the Duke of Zhou, became regent. Seeing that the power of the Duke of Zhou was increasing, the Three Guards got jealous and rebelled against Zhou together with Wu Geng. The Duke of Zhou suppressed the rebellion, and Cai Shu was exiled. King Cheng reestablished Cai Shu’s son Wu as the Duke of Cai. Some 600 years later in the Warring States Period, the State of Chu conquered Cai in 447 BC and was itself conquered by the Qin state which, in turn, formed the Qin Empire, China's first empire. With the spread of family names to all social classes in the new empire, many people of the former state of Cai began to bear it as a surname.

Choi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (311 words)
For the Chinese surname Cai (채/蔡), sometimes transliterated as Choi, see Cai (surname).
Choi means a governor, who oversees the people, the land, and the mountain.
The surname Choi also means high, superior, lofty or towering, which might explain why this surname is mostly used as surnames of antagonists in Korean soap operas.
Lin Family History (1241 words)
Our surname "Lin" is pronounced "Lim" in the diverse, eight-tone based, Southern Min Chinese language family (Min Nan Hua) of Taiwan and Fujian Province, China.
Its written character means "woods," which is not surprising as the character for Lin is composed of two of the ideograms for "tree." Presumably, many people adopted or were given this surname because they lived near or in the woods.
Surnames came to be associated with specific villages, presumably as farming families prospered at fertile locations.
