In Reply to: What is the Chinese character for POON, and how else was it anglicized? posted by Gary Glen Price on July 10, 2004 at 16:07:39:
There maybe two possible characters Poon. It is likely that it stands for Pan which means something like "the left over water after rinsing the rice." A variation might be Pon. Another surname exists in parts of Taishan--that is Pan meaning "a dish." It may also be romanized as Poon or Pon.
