I have some knowledge of the Mah family history. Yes, it does mean horse (spelled Ma, Mah, Mar, etc). The name originated around the time of Christ, 200 BC-AD. Not surprisingly, we were not Mahs until then but had another surname from which we changed. One of our early ancestor was a famous general who served the emperor well. A (dome) peak is named in his honor in Guilin: Fok Bo Mountain. Early this year the Ma clan held
World wide convention in Thailand. You are welcome to communicate with me further re our family history.
