In Reply to: Chinese Character for Last name Ong posted by Sharon on January 21, 2002 at 11:17:37:
If the surname is from Indonesia then it is of Hokkien (Fujian) origin. It can be one of two, the first being Wang meaning king and the other is Weng meaning father. I believe it is most likely the former rather than the latter. To see the Chinese character for these two go to www.chineseroots.com and do an Advanced Search with Ong and identify Hokkien.
: My looking for the Chinese Character for the last name Ong. I think its background is Chinese/Indonesian. If anyone knows, could you please let me know. Or if you have the character could you please email me.
