Moreover, there is another branch of people surnamed Guo, who live in Liaocheng where there has been the enfeoffment of ancient Guo State. These people surnamed Guo are also a branch of Emperor Huangdi's family.
Meanwhile, it is also an important source of surname Guo that the minority and people with other surnames change their family names to the surname Guo.
