There are four origins of the zhi (zhī) surname: 1. There was a man named zhi's father in Yao and Shun, and his descendants would use zhi as their surname (see Biography of Gao Shi). 2. The descendants of the Zhou Dynasty had clan names . In "History of the Road", some of the descendants of the princes and princes of the Zhou Dynasty had their surnames as their surnames. 3. From the surname of Ji , the descendants of the descendants, the eldest son of the eldest son and inherited ancestors in the Zhou Dynasty under the patriarchal system called the eldest son of the eldest son, the eldest son of the eldest wife and the eldest son were "branch". When they were separated, Some use Zhi as the surname, and then form the Zhixing. Among the branches of the ancient princes and princes, some used the word "branch" as their surname. 4.

Uncle Cai. A native of Dingzhou, a well-known scribe in Tang Ming, was praised for his filial piety. It was deserted in the late Sui Dynasty, and the beggar was eating in the wild. His mother was killed by the thief. Uncle Zhi expressed his affection. The thief showed mercy to his filial piety and let his mother down. His mother had gangrene, and he had a sore injection. When his mother died, he built a house next to the tomb to guard filial piety, and there was a white crane beside him. People thought it was due to Xiaogan, so the descendants of Zhi 's descendants were the first ancestors of Zhi.
The Zhi family name is not included in the top 100 of the 100 family names on the mainland or in Taiwan. The origin of the family name is complex and vague. According to legend, there was a man named Zhifu during the second emperor Yao Shun, and his descendants were Zhi's. There is also a clan that is said to originate from a descendant of the Zhou Dynasty. In the Western Han Dynasty, there was a one-month tributary in Central Asia. It was a small country in the Dunhuang area on the Silk Road during the Qin Dynasty and the Han Dynasty . It is located in the central and western Gansu Province and the eastern Qinghai Province. Initially settled in Shaanxi, Shanxi and other places, and gradually moved to distribute throughout the country. In the Jin Dynasty , some of the people of Yuezhi stayed and settled in the Central Plains and other places. After the Tang Dynasty unified the world, it was assimilated by the Han culture and became a complete Chinese. They learn the habit of using the name of the Central Plains, and some take a branch from the name of the country as the last name. Another family name is from ancient times, but the ancient book records are very simple. For example, in Gao Shizhu, there was someone named Yao Father in Yao Dynasty. Another "Lu Shi" said that the descendants of the Zhou Dynasty had clan surnames . In ancient times, most of the people of the Wang family with a surname lived in Langya, and today there are many people with a surname in Linyi, Shandong. At present, the family name is mainly residing in Hengshui City, Baoding City, Shijiazhuang City, and Zhangjiakou City of Hebei Province.
