    Name Meaning

    Spanish and Portuguese: from ganga, a word literally meaning ‘pin-tailed sandgrouse’ (of onomatopoeic origin), used figuratively to mean ‘thing of little value’ and hence ‘good bargain’.

    Italian (Sardinia): perhaps from the dialect word ganga ‘gill’.

    Indian: from a personal name based on Ganga, Hindi name of the River Ganges, revered by Hindus as a holy river. This surname is also found in Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, South Africa, and Mauritius.
