About the Mai surname

Some Mai families of some reputation may be descended from Mai of Liu family ,son of Fa Ding son of Qi Jing son of Wendi descended from Liu Pang ,founder of Han dynasty ,called in Europe

therefore Han-Nibal ,ruling in the Holy Land of America too between about 220 and 176 BC , corresponding to 1167 and 1211 of the aera currently used by the united nations,of Spanish origin  and with beginning in 1387 BC .

Some of Mayoruna tribe in Peru may also be descended from him ,as well as some of Trumai .

Liu Pang ,as leader of Hans was called Han-Nibal in Europe ,while his son Wendi is identifyable with Prusias,king of Bithynia ascensing to the throne just in the period of time Hannibal visited that country , although apparently adopted by the previous rulers' families . Prusias' name may be interpereted as Peru-Uusiwa ,a rough translation of which in the Inca language might be We-Andi ,and even We-Arauco-Che . Peruvians called him Didu Roca .,what in the ancient Prussian language ,and in Kartvelian of likely origin from Kart-Hago ,might mean Big Horn ,while Indians in their different regions using different aeras knew

him as Pushyapamitra ,that is Prusya-Apami-Tera ,and Ko-Perun-Tsinga .

Mai is the direct ancestor of the later kings of Han . His name can be deduced also from Ma(r)i ,in which case he may be the ancestor of Cheremys nobility , called Kart, too . Uncles of him ruling in Chu(d) ,namely Yingke(r)-Yi and his son Wu(t) ,might be the forefathers of some Ingkeri and Vot people in Chud country .
