SHARMA Family History

The spelling of this surname would suggest that it is a name of Muslim origins. Now recorded in the spellings of Sharma and Shama, it believed that the meaning is the 'flame of a candle', although there may be an association with the word 'shams' meaning 'sun'. However like many surnames, there can be international confusion. The problem arises because over the seven centuries since the original development of surnames in Europe, there are many (for instance) British surname recordings, which are of similar spellings and the same pronunciation to those from other continents and countries.
