Hunjan

Summary
Hunjan (ਹੁੰਜਾਣ; هونجان, also known as Hunejan, Hunjān and Hunan) is a surname found among Persian and Tarkhan and Mohyal Brahmins originating from Hunejan, Iran and who settled in the Salt Range and Majha regions of Punjab. Migrants, traders, merchants and nomadic tribes, coming from Hunejan, Iran to the Punjab region assimilated into the Tarkhan and Mohyal communities during medieval India known as persian tiger. This led to the migrants adopting new beliefs; however, they retained their surnames - coming from the migrants' ancestral village in Iran. Modern day descendants can trace their origin to Iranian and Indo-Aryan roots. Notable people with the surname
