~Singh~

Singh is an Indian term used as a title or name. The term is derived from the Sanskrit, sinha, meaning “lion,” and represents royalty, courage and divinity. Originally, it was used by Indian warriors and, in 1699, was taken up by the Sikhs and used as a name for all baptized men to ensure equality for everyone. Baptized female Sikhs use the term, kaur, meaning “princess.”
