: I am of pure Chinese descent, but am unable to trace my ancestry. I was born in the Philippines, and the other person I met with the last name Sy is Filipino. Is my surname Chinese? Does anyone know?
Yes. Sy is a proper Chinese Last name. However, you need to know the exact character. Other variations in spelling that I have seen are See, Siy, Si- and some others.
