Hi Shanna,
I was born in Indonesia, now living in Germany. My grandfather came from Xiamen (Fujian). Next month I 'm planning to go to Xiamen/Fujian to look for my roots. A Chinese woman in Nanjing told me the meaning of the Chinese character (Phan) is: the combination of: Three Waters-Man-Rice-Farmland.
