The origin of the Wat (屈) surname is from the Hubei (湖北) region. Historically, the Hubei region was part of the State of Chu during the Spring and Autumn Period of Ancient Chinese history. The King Wu of State of Chu awarded his son Xia with the Qu Yi as feud to recognize his outstanding service to the court of Chu. The people called Xia “Qu Xia” and the offspring of Xia adopted Qu as their surname.

The royal family of State of Chu was descendants of Zhuanxu, the grandson of Emperor Huangdi (i.e. Yellow Emperor). Therefore, Qu is also the descendant of Emperor Huangdi. During the reign of the North Wei Dynasty , the people with last name of Qutu adopted Qu as their surname.

The most famous individual with surname Qu, is Qu Yuan, the patriotic poet of the State of Chu in the Warring States Period of ancient Chinese history.
