马(Ma) is famous surname of Hui Muslim. When our ancestors had to make Chinese name, they tried to hold Muslim memory. The speak sound of Chinese马 is ma, like Mahmoud Malik and Mohammad these Muslim names. So 马(Ma) is the most welcomed by Hui Muslims.
On the other hand, many people are cavalry in Hui Muslim ancestors,they love their partners. The meaning of 马 is horse in Chinese.
Our ancestors ever brought Muslim name from middle East and central Asia. They had to make their Chinese name before 600 years. It’s Ming dynasty(1368—1644). That is a story like what is happening in #Xinjiang today.
The Ming founder is Zhu Yuanzhang(朱元璋), a Chinese nationalist. He is a tyrant, a patient of #Islamophobia!
On one hand Zhu massacred the Military Meritocracy including Hui Muslim generals, on the other he launched ethnic cleansing. He made laws of forbidding Muslim name clothes and Arabian(禁胡服、胡语、胡姓). He used Confucianism to assimilate Muslims like in #Xinjiang today!
