Additionally, a branch of the Liu clan ( see Lau 1), descendants of Liu Lei , who supposedly had the ability to handle dragons, was granted the name Yu-Long (meaning roughly ‘resistor of dragons’) by the Xia emperor Kong Jia ( 1879–1849 bc ). Some descendants later simplified Yu-Long to Long and adopted it as their surname.
