Surnames or last name is indicative of the family in many aspects like following.
And every surname has meaning.
surnames by religion, by profession etc.
Ex: Saifuddeen Chowdhury Kanchon, where "Saifuddeen" would be the man's name, "Chowdhury" would be his family name, and "Kanchon" would be his nickname. In these situations, this man would be correctly addressed "Mr. Chowdhury", not "Mr. Kanchon". Bengali People and Oriya People (Oriyas, people form Orissa) Have many similar surnames such as Das, Chowdury, Chodhury

Ex: Saikia indicates commander over 100 soldiers (Sa=100). Hazarika was commander over 1000 soldiers(Hazar=1000). Other lastnames are Bora and Borbora, Barua and Borbarua, Gohain, Borgohain, Buragohain etc. where Bor=elder or bigger, Bura=older.
My surname means *collector of herbs*, ur surname means emperor or ruler, am I right.
