Surnames of LEE (LI) and CHOU (ZHOU)

Rena’s surname is Chou (Zhou) and my surname is Lee (Li).  In ancient China, there was a poem-like listing of hundred surnames ranking Lee and Chou the 5th and 6th most popular surnames in China, respectively.

Today, a new statistic listing becomes available which shows that Lee ranks first and is the most popular Chinese surname with 95,300,000 people and Chou is the 9th with 24,600,000.

I guess there are a lot of LEEs and CHOUs around 🙂
