I have seen a grave plaque with the surname "Soto" in Roman script. In Chinese script it is shown as Du4. You can see this character at this site: http://www.webcom.com/ocrat/chargif/surnames.html. It is shown on the 5th line and is the 3rd charater from the right. Unfortunately, I cannot explain how "Soto" came from this Chinese surname. Hope this helps.
: is "soto" a chinese surname? people keep on telling me that it is but i'm not sure. thanks
