: My last name seems to be very rare. Is there anyone out there with my last name? Does anyone know the origin of my surname?
"Kee" looks like the Cantonese version of the pinyin "Ji"; this was the original clan name of the Chou (pinyin: Zhou) kings. Very powerful clan along the Yellow River three thousand years ago.
