Rana Name Meaning

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 ra?ni ‘queen’ (Sanskrit rajñi, based on the analogy that nouns ending in -i and denoting females usually have masculine counterparts ending in -a). 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. Spanish and Italian: from rana ‘frog’, hence a nickname, perhaps for someone with bulging eyes. Galician (Raña): habitational name from a place so called in the province of A Coruña.
