Singh Family HistoryFound recorded in the spellings of Sinha and Singh, this famous 'surname' is Sikh (Hindi-Indian) in origin. Given the translation of 'The lion', it is perhaps not surprising that it is one of the most popular names in the world, however that is not the main reason. On achieving manhood a young Sikh is granted the name of 'Singh' to imply that he has joined the ranks of his father. The derivation is from the ancient 'sinha' meaning 'lion' and in this sense the name follows the tradition of surnames from Asia and the Indian sub-continent.
