In olden times King Nguyen forced people to change their last name to Nguyen. If they did not they were killed.
Thats why so many Viets have their last name as Nguyen. Some people that don't have their last name as Nguyen might have changed their last name after the reign of the King Nguyen ended.
Nguyen is a common last name to Viets.
