Origin of Taiwan surname.

Best answer: In ancient spring and autumn, there was a place name in Lu called Yuntai Mountain, and a scribe took the mountain as his surname, Tantai Mieming. Tantai Mountain is just south of Jiaxiang County, Shandong Province. Tantai Mieming is a student of Confucius, and his descendants are passed down by Dan Tai. At that time, there was a place along the Yangtze River called Dan Tai Lake, so some ancient books said that Confucius was the student who traveled south and once lived by the lake of Dan Tai, so he took the lake as his surname.
