The 36th most common last name in China.
The are two main origins of this last name. 1) Descendents of
Huang Di, an ancient king. Huang Dis grandson, Da You, was awarded the land of Fu,
during the Zhou Dynasty. His descendents bear the last
name Fu. 2) Descendents of Fu Shui, the prime minister of the
Shang Dynasty. When Shang Wu Ding became the emperor, his kingdom was very weak,
and Wu Ding vowed to strengthen his empire. One night, he dreamt of a fairy who introduced
a man to him. This man dressed in ragged clothing and was a hunchback. The fairy said to
Wu Ding, "This is the saint that can help you succeed." After he woke up, he drew a portray of
this man, and asked his followers to look for him. Indeed, such a man was found in Fu Yan
(south east of Ping Lu in Shanxi province). His name was Fu Shui. With Fu Shuis help,
the Shang Dynasty prospered. Shang Wu Ding is thus known as a king of reformation.
Fu Shui on the other hand is known as the forefather of the Fu family.
