Name Meaning

1 Chinese 孟: during the Spring and Autumn period ( 722–481 bc ), there were two sources of the name Meng. A son of a prince in the state of Lu was called Meng Sun, while a duke of the state of Wei had a ‘style name’ of Meng Zhi. Descendants of both adopted the Meng portion of their names as their surname. This was the family name of Meng Zi, known to the West as Mencius, the Confucian philosopher.2 Chinese 蒙: two sources of this surname are a General Men of the Qin Dynasty 221–206 bc ) and a place named Mengshuang in Hebei province. Additionally, the Yuan Dynasty ( 1271–1368 ad ) was under the rule of Mongolia, known in Chinese as Menggu. Menggu became a surname, which in later times was generally shortened to Meng.3 German: from a form of the personal name Magnus .
