Reply to: surname meaning by Giacomo Ganza

The word Ganza may come from the German Gans or Renaissance French Ganse, both meaning goose. 'Ganza', from the renaissance French word 'ganse', was a kind of gut string used to adorn dresses; this is found in 'Dizionario Etimologico Battisti-Alessio. Gans comes from Sanskrit HANS.
