Chinese: there are three different surnames that are Romanized in
pinyin as Bao. Other Romanizations include Bau,
Pao, and Pau.
Chinese: this character
also means ‘abalone’, but the name comes from an old place name. The
area of Bao was granted to a chief counselor of the state of Qi during
the Spring and Autumn period (722–481 bc). His son took the
place name as his surname and was called Bao Shuya. Bao Shuya was
famous for his lofty moral character and was skilled at delegating
authority, eventually becoming the first ‘Chief King’ of the Spring
and Autumn period.
Chinese: this Chinese
character means ‘to wrap’ or ‘package’. The name is derived from the
name of Shen Baoxu. Shen Baoxu was a senior official who lived 2500
years ago in the state of Chu. When the state of Chu was attacked by
the state of Wu, Shen Baoxu went to the State of Qin to beg for
aid. There, he reportedly cried for seven days and nights until the
duke of Qin was moved to help rescue the state of Chu.
Chinese: this character means ‘(violently) sudden’. It
comes from the name of Bao Xingong, a duke during the Yin dynasty
