Japanese Surname
JAPANESE NAMES (日本人の氏名, Nihonjin no Shimei) in modern times usually consist of a family name (surname), followed by a given name . More than one given name is not generally used. Japanese names are usually written in kanji , which are characters usually Chinese in origin but Japanese in pronunciation. The kanji for a name may have a variety of possible Japanese pronunciations, hence parents might use hiragana or katakana when giving a birth name to their newborn child. Names written in hiragana or katakana are phonetic renderings, and so lack the visual meaning of names expressed in the logographic kanji . Japanese family names are extremely varied: according to estimates, there are over 100,000 different surnames in use today in Japan. The three most common family names in Japan are Satō (佐藤), Suzuki (鈴木), and Takahashi

Chinese Surname
CHINESE SURNAMES are used by Han Chinese and Sinicized ethnic groups in Mainland China , Hong Kong , Macau , Malaysia , Taiwan , Korea , Singapore , Vietnam and among overseas Chinese communities. In ancient times two types of surnames existed, namely _xing_ (Chinese : 姓; pinyin : _xìng_) or LINEAGE NAMES, and _shi_ (Chinese : 氏; pinyin : _shì_) or CLAN NAMES. Chinese family names are patrilineal , passed from father to children. (In cases of adoption, the adoptee usually also takes the same surname.) Women do not normally change their surnames upon marriage, except in places with more Western influences such as Hong Kong. Traditionally Chinese surnames have been exogamous . The colloquial expressions _laobaixing_ (老百姓; lit. "old hundred surnames") and _bǎixìng_ (百姓, lit

Romanization Of Chinese
The ROMANIZATION OF CHINESE is the use of the Latin alphabet to write Chinese . Chinese uses a logographic script , and its characters do not represent phonemes directly. There have been many systems using Roman characters to represent Chinese throughout history. Linguist Daniel Kane recalls, "It used to be said that sinologists had to be like musicians, who might compose in one key and readily transcribe into other keys." However, Hanyu Pinyin has become the international standard since 1982. Other well-known systems include Wade-Giles and Yale Romanization . There are many uses for Chinese Romanization. Most broadly, it used to provide a useful way for foreigners who are not skilled at recognizing Chinese script a means to read and recognize Chinese names. Apart from this general role, it serves as a useful tool for foreign learners of Chinese by indicating the pronunciation of unfamiliar characters
