There is a legend. At beginning of Zhou Dynasty ( about 17 or 16 century B.C.), or someone says it happened in King Zhoulie Period (about 4th century), there was a person named kuangsu. He practiced austerities in Mount Lushan. It is said that kuangsu's style name was "Junshao", some books call him "Kuangyu" or "Kuangxu", and style name was "Zixiao", but "Yu" sounds more reasonable by the look of China's traditional name and antithetical couplet justice of the word, so "Su"and"Xu" was the device sound of his name by rumors. But name that spread generally to claim it is "Su", and very few people know the name "Yu" now. For being convenient, here we follow the call which people know well.

Later o­n people beautified story of Kuangsu, and called the place where he stayed "the immortal's hut", and name of Mount Lushan come out. Also people name Lushan after Kuangsu's surname as "kuangshan". Arrived Song dynasty, for avoiding using the same word as the name of Song emperor, people renamed it "kangshan".
