    Luó 罗 is a fairly common surname, and in that context it has the meaning "gatherer"... it ranks 20th out of the 100 most common Chinese surnames. In traditional script it would be 羅. In Pinyin it's Luó; in Wade Giles and Hong Kong Cantonese it's Lo; other Cantonese variations include Law, Loh, Lowe, and Lor.

    As for the given name: Zhìxiǎn 志显; together the characters don't have a meaning. Zhì 志 as a noun it can mean 'will' (determined), 'record' (write something down), 'sign' (mark, notation, sign)... as a verb it can mean 'remember'. Xiǎn 显 is a verb meaning 'to display' or 'to be apparent', as an adjective it's used in 'illustrious', 'celebrated', 'influential' and 'outstanding'. Depending on how the characters are paired, a variety of meaning can be derived... both zhì 志 and xiǎn 显 are used in compounds, but not paired together. Chinese given names don't necessarily mean anything as a compound, but the characters reflect qualities desired... with that said, Zhìxiǎn 志显 could mean something like "determined to be outstanding".

    These are simplified Chinese characters.

    Last name is a quite common last name. If you really want to know what it means: tight net or gather.

    Given name (two characters): show one's aspiration/ambition.

    Meaning-wise, it's a good name.

    罗 is a family name.

    志 显 is the name of the man, it means showing your ambition
