There is a long list of two-character Chinese surnames in the surname dictionary in Chineseroots.com. The following link is for the name Yu-Chi:
: I'm interested in any info on Chinese compound surnames such as Sima, Zhuge, Siguang. I know that Ouyang and Situ (Sitoe) are relatively common but what are the other compound surnames? I heard that there are about 30? Has anyone heard of Yuchi/Yu(4)chi(2)? Are there still people with this surname around? The Yu is a character that is normally read as Wei(4) and chi means 'late'.
: Thanks! ^_^
