Cheng Genealogy & History

Cheng, a famous Chinese ornamental surname, means journey to complete, as Chinese surnames are more philosophical than descriptive like their European counterparts. Cheng therefore represents the journey after death and is a variant of the Chinese Zheng but actually can be a transcription of several Chinese surnames depending on the sound representation. Cheng family history dates to the Shang dynasty (1766-1122 BCE), when a descendant of Emperor Zhuan Xu was granted lordship of the Cheng state, and his descendants adopted the locational name as their surname. A renowned name-holder in Cheng genealogy is Cheng Pu, a general during the Three Kingdoms.
