While the majority of Chinese people have one or two given names, many families have more than one. This is not uncommon in most parts of the world where families have at least one member who belongs to a specific ethnic group, yet in China there are many distinct ethnic groups that have adopted different names. In recent years, the number of ethnic monikers has grown because of this.
The most commonly used monikers in China today are Cantonese, Mandarin, Hunan, Yunnan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Hakka, Manchu, and Mongolian. These monikers are often used in formal situations such as business meetings and social functions. In some families, the last names of these ethnic monikers are interchanged. In other families, the first and middle names of the family members are combined with that of the monikers. This creates a new name based on a common element among the family members. For example, in a Hui family, all of the members have the name of the first son, yet there are also variations in the pronunciation of the name.
These ethnic monikers are often used in order to distinguish individuals in a family. There are many examples of Chinese people being referred to as "Kan 'zi'an", or even "Zhan 'xia'an". In Chinese, the word is pronounced 'zhan'xia'an'. There are even some cases when a person might use a synonym to separate themselves from another individual, as in an individual who is not related to another member of their family. This separation is known in Chinese as "qi zhan"changzhi".
