Hyun Name Meaning
Korean (Hyon): there is one Chinese character for the surname Hyon. Some records indicate that there are 106 Hyon clans, but only four can be documented, and these all descend from the same founding ancestor. The Hyon clan founding ancestor was a Koryo general named Hyon Tam-yun, who lived during the latter part of the 12th century. Members of the Hyon clan can be found throughout Korea, with high concentrations in Kyongsang North province, Kyonggi province, Ch’ungch’ong South province, and Cholla South province.
