Does your surname has a story, a history or a character in it?
Take mine. It is a conjoint Sanskrit word having two parts. Mukh stands for Chief, Principal or Head and Upadhyay stands for a teacher.
Historically it corroborates. Mukhopadhyay were Brahmins brought by Kings of Sen Dynasty in medieval Bengal for enlightenment of his subjects.
Of course, in course of time Mukhopadhyays are teachers exclusively, in fact there are illiterate Mukhopadhyays too.
I wonder what does your surname stand for and if any insight can be gleaned from it.
