Chang Genealogy & History

Chang, which is also sometimes transliterated as Zhang, is one of the most common names in the Chinese-speaking world. In fact, it was listed in the 1990 Guiness Book of World Records as the most common surname in the world. The word has multiple possible meanings, including longbow, constant, mountain, and open. Chang family history and Chang genealogy may go back millennia, though the origins are legendary. The story involves the fifth son of the Emperor Huang Di, who was inspired by the Chinese Arc constellation and invented the bow, becoming the first Zhang, or "master of bows." Cho Chang is a character in the Harry Potter series.
