Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Indian (Gujarat, Bombay city, and Rajasthan): Hindu and Parsi name meaning ‘king’ in modern Indian languages. Rana does not have a Sanskrit equivalent; it is probably a back-formation from rạ̄nī ‘queen’ (Sanskrit rājñī, based on the analogy that nouns ending in and denoting females usually have masculine counterparts ending in ). The name Rana was used as a title by some Rajput kings. As a surname, it is now found among Rajputs as well as several other communities. It is cognate with the name Rane, which occurs in Maharashtra and Goa.
  2. Spanish and Italian: from rana ‘frog’, hence a nickname, perhaps for someone with bulging eyes.
  3. Galician (Raña): habitational name from a place so called in the province of A Coruña.
