Myung Name Meaning

Korean: variant of Myong. In 1363, Myon Ok-jin established the Ha (Summer) Kingdom between Korea’s Koryo Kingdom and China’s Yuan Kingdom and declared himself emperor. This was a time of shifting political alliances between Korea and China, and several such small kingdoms appeared on the borderlands between the two nations. Myong Ok-jin died in 1366 and his son, Myong Song, ascended the throne of the Ha Kingdom. At this time, however, China’s Yuan nation was falling and the new Ming Dynasty seized the Ha kingdom’s territory. Myong Song returned to Koryo and was given the right by the Koryo king to live in Songdo, Korea. Later, when the Koryo kingdom fell to the Choson kingdom, Myong Sung associated with the Yi Dynasty’s founding king, Yi Song-gye. Most members of the present-day Myong family live in North Korea’s P’yonan North Province.
