Hi, can anyone help me with the origin of my surname? It's Wen in the 2nd tone (pinyin). It translates to 'literature' in English. I've been doing a lot of research on this for a while, but the thing is--it's of Manchu origin. (All the sites I've looked at only talks about the Han "version.") And the only thing I about my lineage is that our family came from the yellow flag (same as the Emperor's). Any piece of information is helpful! Thanks.
