Is this a hui only surname like hu (tiger)? Because most other surnames among hui like ma are found among han and were there before the 1300s.

Genetically, all Irish grandparents. My parents were born in England.

But I have a Polish surname.

Many people claim descent from him, there were a hui lineage in fujian that somehow thought it was possible for them to claim patrilineal descent from guo ziyi and a persian at the same time, it sounded like a good science fiction novel, I'm not sure how that is supposed to work in real life. (I'm not belittling or doubting your claim, the hui lineage i looked up is real and they did really make this claim of being descended from two people in the same patrilineage)
