The 42nd most common last name in China. They are the descendents of ancient king Yan Di. During Xi Zhou Dynasty, the grandson of Yan Di, Lu Shang was made duke of Qi, known as Qi Tai Gong. After a few generations, Qi Wen Gongs wife gave birth to Gong Zi Gao. Gong Zi Gao had a grandson named Xi, who was made duke of Lu, because of his contribution in reestablishing kingdom for Qi Heng Gong. His descendents all have the last name Lu. After the Tian family took over the Qi kingdom, the Lus migrated north. During the Qin Dynasty, there was a wise man Lu Ao who lived in Shi (Hebei). At the end of Qin Dynasty, Lu Aos descendent Lu Guan assisted Han Dynasty in rebelling against Qin Dynasty, and was awarded the duke of Yan in the vicinity of Shi. During the Three Kingdoms, Shi was under the control of the Wei kingdom, known as Fan Yang. Thus Lu people of Shi are also called Fan Yang Lu. Lu, Xie, Cui and Wang were known as the "four great last names" during the Nanbei Dynasty.
