The Surname Goon in is better known as "KOON". There is a village or city right outside of Hong Kong (inside China)where Koon is the majority surname. It was also the surname of the founding family of that village. The village's name is pronounced in English as "Bo on" or something to that extent. Since People from that village is near Hong Kong. It is likely that you too are from that village.
: Grandfather was George Goon and Quong Lee. Both from China, both dead for 20+ years, both came to Baltimore, but I am not able to find out where or when or anything about my roots. Anyone know what Goon may stand for?
