Last name origins & meanings:
- German and Dutch: from a common and long-established vernacular
personal name, an aphetic form of Johannes (see John).
The surname is also borne by Ashkenazic Jews, presumably as an
adoption of the German or Dutch surname.
- Indian (Panjab): Hindu
(Arora) and Sikh name, from Sanskrit hamsa ‘swan’, ‘goose’,
based on the name of an Arora clan.
