Need help with Chinese names

I am transcribing federal census information for the Rootsweb Census Project. Specifically, the 1860 census for Calaveras county, CA. I have come across hundreds of Chinese names with "Ah" listed as the first name. What does this mean? Is this truely a first name and is the second name most likely the surname?

Any clarification will be appreciated.
