Surname - "Sarath"
My family is the only one in the uk with this surname. We have come to a dead end trying to trace it. It seems to occur frequently in India and Sri Lanka, but is a forename there. Does anyone know a meaning for the name and it's history or anything that indicates how it has ended up here?

I once wrote a thesis on bioluminous molluscs with a Dr. Javinder Sarath. I'm afraid he didn't advise me as to the origins of the name, but I can assure you it was his surname. His family were born in Shorkot, Pakistan and moved shortly after his birth to Dublin.
Good luck with your continued search.
