In Reply to: What is the meaning of the surname TAN? posted by Andrew Ten on May 10, 1999 at 20:28:33:
According to Chinese recorde the Tan surname is related to the Chow clan. In Hawaii, there are two Chinese surname families, which seem to merge. One is Chock and the other is Tom. Tom and Tan are different pronounciations for the same family character. I am thinking that my link below may be of some help.
