In Reply to: Is there a Chinese surname with the meaning of "meadow"? posted by Erik on September 16, 2003 at 16:14:14:
Erik, try either Mu or Tsayow depending on geographical origination. Mu for the North, Tsayow for the South. There is also a semi-Korean/Chinese dialect, called Kiyim, that has a common surname, Tsaoh, that also means meadow. I heard that Korean women were brought over from the peninsula during war raids in the 10th century and used as a cultural breeding project. Do you have any Korean blood in you? If so, Tsaoh is probably your best bet.
