In the Spring and Autumn Period, there were few place names, and it was more than 180 miles east of Shangxian County, Shaanxi, later known as Wuguan. For those who lived in the area, some people named the place by their surname.


Xi Xiang. The surname of Xi is based on the country. According to the "Customs and Customs", Xi is an ancient country name. It had the siblings of the Han Dynasty and served as Chen Xiang. The "Zuo Zhuan Du Zhuan" records that the Xi family is based on the surname of the land. Shaoxian was originally a place name. In Dongzhi Wuguan, Zhe County, the Wangs came from Xiangyang. In ancient times, there was a vassal state, Xi State. After Xi State was destroyed, its talents were referred to as Xi, which is called Xi.
