Pang Name Meaning

Chinese : from the name of a village called Pang, which was granted to a descendant of Bi Gonggao, the 15th son of the virtuous duke Wu Wang, whose magnanimous rule led to the establishment of the Zhou dynasty in 1122 bc. Later descendants adopted the name of the village as their surname. Chinese : from the name of a prince of the Yin dynasty (1401–1122 bc), Pang Boling. Chinese : variant of Peng. Korean: there are five Chinese characters for this surname; only one, however, is common enough to warrant treatment here. The clan associated with this character is the Onyang Pang. The founding ancestor of this clan was a Tang Chinese named Pang Chi, who lived in Hunan province, China, until his migration to Shilla in 669. There is a gap in the records after Pang Chi. The ancestor who settled in the Onyang area was named Pang Un. He served the early Koryo Wang Dynasty faithfully, so when he retired to the Onyang area, local geographic features were named after him and many of his descendants continued to live there, hence the name of their clan. Variant of German Bang.
