Wu Genealogy & History

Wu is a Chinese name, likely originally used as a nickname, as it is Cantonese for godlike or highest. It is also both a Chinese region and a dialect. Several other Chinese names are written in English as Wu, as well as one common Korean name. Wu family history in China is ancient, as records have been kept there without culture-shifting invasions for many centuries, unlike England and continental Europe. Wu genealogy lays claim to quite a few prominent people, such as action movie director John Woo, former Singaporean Prime Minister Wu Zuodong, 17th-century General Wu Sangui, and many influential emperors of several houses.
