Well, I believe it is pronounced 'Zhang' in Mandarin.
'Lin' and 'Chen' (pronounced in mandarin) are relatively common surnames too.
: Hi: According to People Republic of China Census 1995 (or 1994,1993?). The most shared/used last name in China was CHEUNG-in cantonese. I cannnot translate it in Mandarin. It means "LONG BOW". IN other word the word it self is make up of two characters "Long" and "BOW". And the population at that time was 100 millions.
