The Chinese character to the left is our last name, Gee. The literal meaning of the character is vermilion, which is a red color (hex triplet #E34234) that is also called cinnibar. Because of that definition, vermilion is the primary color incorporated into the design of our web site. In other dialects of Cantonese, it can also be pronounced Chee or Chu, so you will sometimes see families with those surnames using the same character. In Mandarin, it is romanized as Zhu (but pronounced like Ju with a long U sound; zh in the pinyin romanization is pronounced like a j). As of 2006, this is the 13th most common Chinese surname.
