Agarwal Name Meaning

Indian (northern states): Hindu (Bania) and Jain habitational name, from Agroha or Agar + the Hindi or Panjabi adjectival suffix -wal (equivalent to -er in English). Agroha in the Hissar district (formerly in the Panjab, now in Haryana) is said to have been the capital city of Agar Sen, a legendary Vaishya king whom the Agarwals claim as their ancestor. Alternatively, the place name in question may be Agar, a city forty miles northeast of Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. The Agarwals are one of the most prominent mercantile communities of northern India.
