The 31st most common last name in China.
In ancient China, Zhuan Xu, asked his two grandsons to
be in charge of making sacrifices. The older brother, Chong, had the title of Nan Zheng and
was in charge of making sacrifices to the heaven. The younger brother, Li, had the title
of Huo Zheng and was in charge of the earthly matters. The two brothers brought peace and
regulations to the people, so that they could concentrate on making a living on the farm.

During the Zhou Dynasty, the descendents of Chong was
awarded the kingdom of Cheng (east of Le Yang in Henan Province), and they began to bear
