: Hey, everyone. I would really appreciate it if you could help me out and post the character for the surname "Chin". Not sure if it matters, but my family is Cantonese
Dear Siu Nga,
The character at this posting is your surname. It is pronounced Chan (as in Jackie Chan) in Cantonese and Chen in Mandarin. Chin is the Taishanese (often mistakenly referred to as a variety of Cantonese) pronunciation.
