Advani [aˑᶑʋaˑɳiˑ]

आडवाणी is a Hindu family name, the Romanisation of which is Advani. It is found among people from Sindh, Pakistan. Sindhi surnames often include the suffix -ani after their grandfather's forename or after their village in Sindh, in memory of it. Thus, Advani can mean either ‘from the village of Advan’ or ‘(descendant) of Adu’, where Adu is presumably the personal name of an ancestor.
