It means "lion" and it was introduced by the Sikh Gurus to

eradicate the practice of casteism, though today castes and

discrimination based on castes still exists amongst Sikhs. All

Sikhs were encouraged to accept Singh as their last name, though

not all Singhs are Sikhs. People belonging to the Rajput and some

other communities also use Singh as their last name.

Singh comes from the sankskrit word Nsringhadeva, literally

translating to Lion.

Singh is an nickname and mane found in Sikhs names. It means

lion or tiger. It reminds the world of the sacrifices and bravery

of the Sikh Gurus.

it also means king
