I am a descendant from a Hom family from Hoi Ping district of Canton My family ancestors have reside there for 30 generations +. I am also looking for information about the meaning of the last name Hom. The Chinese Character for Tan, Tom, Thom, Him, Hom, Holm, Tam, Ham, Hum, is the same they spell it different in English. And will pronounce it differently too. The Character should look the about the same for all those surnames. I hope I have helped a little if you have any info please email me or post a comment.
