The Son Family

The Son Family is the main family in Dragon Ball, and consists of six known members, plus extended family and an unspecified number of unnamed members.

This is one of the two families in the series to have the Human and Saiyan bloodlines (the other being the Brief Family).

The Son family is introduced in the series with the character Son Goku, whose name is a parody of Sun Wukong, a character from popular Chinese and Japanese cultures. Unlike most associated characters, the Son family does not have a theme of naming.

The Sons are noted as a family from Mount Paozu in the series. Supporting the fact that the Sons are an Eastern family, the Sons' last name is placed in front of the individual's name, which is consistent with family names in the real-life Eastern cultures. Furthermore, the Sons tend to wear traditional Asian styled garbs for their regular clothing.
