PUNJABI GOTRA NAMES ARE BASED ON ORIGINAL AREA THE TRIBE CAME FROM

ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਗੋਤਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਨਾਂ ਉਸ ਇਲਾਕੇ ਦੇ ਅਧਾਰ ਤੇ ਹਨ ਜਿਥੋਂ ਕਬੀਲਾ ਆਇਆ ਸੀ
TREHAN FROM TEHRAN
SEE HERE THE AREA FROM WHERE THE GOTRA ORIGINALLY CAME FROM
Author: B.S.Goraya


With the grace of Baba Nanak  some of my researches in this field are of international repute. Thus often my young friends of FB and  Whattsapp ask me  as to what is the origin of Goraya people. Please note that the names of gotras are originally the names of tribes which were obsorbed in the respective Jaats (Castes). And further the name of a tribe or Kabila is often based on the area they migrated from. Our Punjab (West and East) is a conglomeration of people who migrated from West especially present Iran, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and some from Iraq and Arab also. This happened roughly between 2000 to 3500 years ago.

We have very clear evidence of existence of Khatri people in Iran at the time of Emperor Darius.
Some of the following Gotra names will prove my point:

1. Gill from Gilan in present Iran
2. Randhawa from Ardabil in present Iran
3. Bajwa from Azerbaijan
4. Basra from Basra area in Iraq
5. Sodhi from Sughdi in Tajikistan
6. Bedi from Bagdis in Afghanistan
6. Khurana from Khurasan
7. Kohli from Kohestan in Afghanistan
8. Janjua from Jaujan area in Afghanistan
9. Trehan from Tehran area in Iran
10. Kahlon from Khosat
11. Bal from Balakh afghanistan
12. Bassi from Bushahar
13. Chadda from Charsadda in Pakistan and Afghanistan
15. Hundal the Hun people of History
16. Chhina from China the Kashgar area in China
17. Khanna from Khujestan in Iran
18. Malhi from Multan or the Mulasthan
19. Koonar from Koonar in afghanistan
20. Sahni from Isfahan in Iran. (sometimes one may feel that they emerged from Sistan also)
21. Takharh from Takharh in Afghanistan
22. Koonar from Koonar in Afghanistan
23. Samra from Samarkand
24. Minhas from Mashhad in Iran
25. Dhir from Dhi Kar area in Iran

33. Bhasin from Badakshan
34. Khara from Bukhara

35. Chahal from Chal in Afghanistan
36. Zaijee from Zajji in Afghanistan
