Your surname "", one of the entries in the Hundred Family Surnames, is actually a rare literary term whose meaning is more or less the same as ϲ (no two characters in Chinese are EXACTLY the same -- even variant characters differ in contexual usage). Thus, is most often used with (le2) to mean "joyous".

I suspect that may refer to cultural aspects such as national heritage or national customs. With that being said, the entirety of your name means "Joyous Customs of the Nation".
