Xue Name Meaning

Chinese : from the area of Xue, in present-day Shandong province. During the Xia dynasty (2205–1766 bc) an official with the title ‘chief of carts’ was granted this area. Much later, in the state of Qi during the Warring States period (403–221 bc) the same area was granted to a prince. Descendants of both these men adopted the place name Xue as their surname.
