    I really want to thank you for taking time to post detailed info. Finally, I hv some sense nockd in to me loll ...I can share all this with my family I needed to know all this for so long now you've made it sound soo simple for me. Everyone loves my cousin sister's name and people always ask for meaning etc of Sujaan. Now I can tell them the meaning with confidence. Sujaan is certainly unique name esp for us but it has profound meaning for sure. Our whole family is full of Gorayas nd use as our surnames loll and we happen to know loads Cheemaz , chattahz etc too Anyway, I'll bookmark this info & thanks heaps & tons for replying: ) Best Regards. -Sarina

    Nahey veer goraya are not tarkhans but belongs to jatt tribe.. Most of the Goraya surname resides in Gurdaspur district (Kadiyaan etc..) though we don't believe in any caste thingy but just wanna point it out as our pind is close to the kadiyaan and knows lot of gorayass.. Aww thats nice to know and yeah caste rubbish is a huge turn off .......

  11. madness takes its toll

  12. Hello everyone, What's happening at your end of the world? : ) I'm Sarina and I've joined this forum to ask few questions related to someone's name in our extended family. Please be humble when you reply to my questions as I've no knowledge of Sikh culture. Can someone tell me who are 'Gorayas' ? My cousin sister's family is Punjabi (Jatt I guess ) and they all use this as their surname. Also in our family is some girl named 'Sujaan'. Her parents say its pure punjabi name but we don't know the origin and meaning of this name. She was once at airport and everyone thought of her as Indian Punjabi and some lady told her 'Goraya' is some village in Punjab, India. But why people in our family uses it as their surname ?? Lady said 'Sujaan' as in Sikh culture was some Saint etc ... One day, our family was all gathered and we raised this topic (we are all punjabis with Lahore's origin) Some say Gorayas purely belong to Indian Punjab and during partition some had to stay in Lahore etc etc ...but me and my cousin want to know exact facts. We should know little about this but want true facts and history. Also what exactly 'Sujaan' name means? We searched all web but nahhh no freaking result. So we decided to join forum for our questions. Hope you guys respond us humbly:) Many Thanks ! -Sarina
