Sheng Name Meaning
Chinese : from the name of an area named Sheng. Mu Wang, fifth king (1001–947 bc) of the Zhou dynasty, granted this area to a follower, whose descendants adopted the place name as their surname. There also is an account of a man surnamed Shi who, to escape persecution by an emperor of the Yuan dynasty (1271–1368), changed his name to Sheng.
