Teng Name Meaning

Chinese : from the name of a fiefdom called Teng in present-day Shandong province, which existed during the Zhou dynasty (1122–221 bc). Accounts of the name Teng in fact go back much further, to the legendary emperor Huang Di (2697–2595 bc), who had a son called Teng. The Zhou dynasty name is documented from 1122 bc, when the fourteenth son of Wen Wang, the founder of the dynasty, was granted a fief named Teng in present-day Shandong province. His descendants eventually adopted the place name as their surname. Chinese : variant spelling of Deng.
