First name origin & meaning:
Japanese: A swamp
Last name origins & meanings:
- Japanese (mostly found in eastern Japan): meaning ‘swamp’, it
is sometimes written with characters used phonetically. A few bearers
have samurai connections. The name is not very common in Japan, but is
a very common element in many other names; so some instances in
America could have been shortened from names either beginning or
ending with sawa.
- Polish: from the personal name
Sawa, from Greek Sabbas (see Savas).
