Hua is a common transliteration for some Chinese surnames, of which the most common ones are 華/华 (pinyin: Huà) and 花 (pinyin: Huā). The Cantonese romanizations for 華 and 花 are Wah and Fa, respectively. 華, when pronounced in the fourth tone in Mandarin, is exclusively used in the name of Mount Hua and as a surname. The usual pronunciation of 華 is huá, which literally means "prosper" and is used as a reference to the Chinese people. On the other hand, 花 literally means "flower".
