Hi Master Lee,
I've seen my surname in different stroke counts of 7, 11 and 12. May I know which is the best to use in the name analysis? Thank you very much for your advise!

Prior to around 1968 even in Singapore, we use Traditional characters or "Big 5" instead of "Simplified Chinese" as found post 1968 schooling.
Thus following past tradition,Traditional Character stroke counts are used.
And usually use the kang xi dictionary stroke count as a default (if in doubt).
Andin today'ssimplified form; the count is 7 stroke characters for this surname.
As for traditional character stroke count sometimes can vary from dictionary and so forth.
But usually this character you mentioned isa common Chinese surname character. Andthus is usually considered as 11 strokes.
Therefore, following Tradition (Big 5); one should try touse 11 strokes for this surname instead of the simplified form which is 7 strokes.
Hope that helps.
Warmest Regards
Robert Lee
