The 78th most common last name in China. The forefather of Qin was
Wei Feizi**, who was a horse trainer for Zhou Xiao Wang.
Because of his good work, he was awarded the valley of Qin (south west of Shui), and was made a
duke. After a few generations, Qins descendents settled at Shaanxi. The original last name of
Wei Feizi was Ying. Since he was made the duke of Qin, some of his descendents started using
Qin as their last name. During Zhan Guo, Qin became a
powerful kingdom which eventually conquered the rest of the kingdoms, united China, and
established the Qin Dynasty. This is why, the last name Qin is
more popular than that of Ying.
**Feizi was a descendent of Zhuan Xu, the ancient king.
Zhuan Xus grandson was Nuxiu. Nuxiu was the father of Da Ye and Da Ye was the father of Bo Yi.
Bo Yi was known for his contribution in helping Xia Yu to fight
the flood, and was given the last name Ying.
