SATS SRI AKAL,


WAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, WAHEGURU JI KE FATEH.

I HAVE TWO SISTERS AND ONE BROTHER, THERE NAMES ARE SURJIT KAUR, SURINDER KAUR & CHARANJIT SINGH. MY NAME IS INDARJIT. MY QUESTION IS, WHAT DO ALL OF THESE NAMES MEAN?

AND IF POSSIBLE, OUR JAATH (FAMILY TITLE) IS RATHORE, CAN YOU ALSO PLEASE TELL ME THE MEANING OF THIS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

SATS SRI AKAL.

Surjit Kaur = literally, incarnation. It may be translated to mean incarnation of spirit. Additionally, Sur means tune or melody (as in Gurbani)and Jit means victory.
Surinder Kaur = Supreme Tune (Sur means tune + Inder means Supreme)
Charanjit Singh = Foot for victory/Victory over the foot, literally (Charan means feet + Jit means Victory)
Indarjit = Supreme Victory (Inder means supreme and Jit means Victory). It may be translated to mean Victory over the Supreme or Supreme Victory.
The Jatt family name Rathore means a farmer clan from the Rajasthan area of India.

If you would like another source for getting the answers to the meanings of any names or to get additional meanings for the names you asked about above, check out the website http://www.sikhs.org/names.htm
