In Reply to: Cantonese Wong, Hakka Wong and Fujianese Wong posted by Chris Wong on November 09, 2002 at 20:44:26:
In Cantonese, there are two meanings but it depends on how it is pronounced in Cantonese. Wong in Hokkien/ChiuChou (Teochew), Hakka, and Cantonese means King, but the Cantonese Wong (Huang in Mandarin) would be equivalent to Teochew/Hokkien's Hong or Ng.
: Is there is any difference between the Wongs (Huang) of Cantonese, Hakka and Fujian origin?
: Most Wongs (Huang) in the US are either from Toi San and neighboring areas. There are also Wongs in the US who are of Hakka and Southern Fujianese (Chiu Chou and Hokkien) ancestry.
: Wong (Huang) is a very common surname among the Southern Chinese such as the Cantonese, Hakka and the Fujian speaking people. Are these people connected in anyway?
