My guess is that you're surname is Wan or Yin in Mandarin. I don't know how to type the character in but go to www.zhongwen.com. Scroll down to Search Dictionary, click on Stroke Count and 3 1/2 rows of character pop up. On the first row, click on 4th character. Another menu of characters will pop up. Go the 2nd row, 6th character. That's the character for Wan. It looks like a fancy P with a stroke going horizontal through the fat part of the P.
