CHUNG Family HistoryThis ancient Chinese name, which is Anglicized in the spellings of Chung, Change, Ching and possibly Shenge, is one of a wide group which owe their origins to the sentimental landscape of flora and fauna. In this case, the name translates literally as "hanging bell", referring to the bell-like flowers of plants such as fuchsia, rather than to any associations with bell founding or bell ringing. This type of abstract surname form is also recorded in Germany, examples being Schoenbach (lovely stream) and Schonblum (lovely flower).
