: Can someone tell me meaning of "Liu" ?
: I have seen Liu as both first name and last name?
: How is this possible?
: Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Its possible because the phonetic : liu, can be several different characters in chinese.
The surname liu means to kill, and it was once a prefecture in the Duchy of Zheng during the Warring States Period. Liu is the surname of all the 24 Han Dynasty Emperors.
