: My last name seems to be very rare. Is there anyone out there with my last name? Does anyone know the origin of my surname?
I couldn't resist. The last name exists in Korea as well.
The character for my surname is "ki" (miraculous, strange; I think it is 'qi' in Mandarin)
There is only one origin for the surname in Korea and
our family registry states that there are around 3,500
families bearing the surname of Korean descent.
