More Info On The SINGH Name

Singh is from the Sanskrit word meaning “lion”. It is a common title, middle name, or surname in Northern India used initially by the Kshatriyas (warriors). In 1699 the name was adopted in Punjab by adherents of the Sikh faith, according to the wishes of Guru Gobind Singh. While others have a choice of using Singh as a name, for all male Sikhs the second name Singh is mandatory – regardless of their geographical or cultural binding. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singh The Telegraph reported in March 2009 on the SINGH name: “People named Singh were found to be at a record high, with 95,203 of them currently living in Britain”
