Name Meaning

Chinese: Mandarin form of the surname 鄂, a short form of present-day Hubei province: (i) from E (鄂), the name of an ancient state (located in Henan province), destroyed by the king Zhou, last king of the Shang dynasty (1600–1046 BC ). (ii) from the placename E (鄂), the name of a fief (located in Shanxi province) in the state of Jin during the Spring and Autumn period (770–476 BC ). (iii) from the placename E (鄂), the name of a fief (located in Hubei province) granted to the royal members of the state of Chu during the Spring and Autumn period (770–476 BC ). (iv) possibly a surname from minority ethnic groups in southwestern China. (v) said to be adopted as a new surname by Yue Ting, who changed his original name Yue (嶽) to E (鄂), because he fled to Huangmei in present-day Hubei province (called E (鄂) at that time) to avoid persecution after his father Yue Fei (1103–1142 AD ), a famous Chinese general in the Southern Song dynasty (1127 – 1279 AD ), was put to death by the then emperor.
