My name is Guoyou Sun. Sun is my surname(Sun is also romanized “Suen”, “Song”, “Soon” in different spelling systems and variety of spoken Chinese) and Guoyou is my given name. Chinese names are written in surname-first order. Hence, my name should really be written as Sun Guoyou (孙国佑 in simplified Chinese, 孫國佑 in traditional Chinese). I am a descendant of sun-tzu (aka Sunzi or Sun Wu). Sun Tzu was a Chinese general, military strategist, writer and philosopher who lived in the Eastern Zhou period of ancient China. Sun Tzu is traditionally credited as the author of The Art of War, an influential work of military strategy that has affected Western and East Asian philosophy and military thinking.
