No Name Meaning
Korean: there are three Chinese characters for the No surname, one of which is extremely rare. Between the three characters, there are a total of sixteen clans. All of the clans are descended from founding ancestors from China. One of the founding ancestors, No Su, migrated from China in 755 and brought with him his nine sons. Each of his sons went on to found another clan. Japanese (No): written with the character for ‘ability’; found in the Ryukyuan island of Amami.
