Singh is a common title, middle name or surname meaning “Lion”, dating back over 2000 years old to ancient India. It was originally used by Rajput Hindus, and is also used by Sikhs, Dogras, Gurkhas, Gujjars, Jats, Marathas, Bhumihars, Yadavs and many other communities.

Sikhs, as a community, have adopted the name as a suffix to their own name so it often used as a surname by many of the Sikh faith. In Hindi and Punjabi the name is written and pronounced as Singh. In Gujarati is is written and pronunced as Sinh. Marathas use Sing.
