Description:
Ganguly (also called Ganguli, Gangulee, Gangoly or Ganggopadhyay) is an Indian family name of a Bengali Brahmin caste; it is a variant of Ganggopadhyay(a) ( Gônggopaddhae). Ganggopadhyay (compound of village name "By the Ganges" and "upādhyāya" denoting "priest, teacher") is the Sanskritized form of the original name anglicized to Ganguly. The historical book 'Jāti-Bhāṣkar' mentions that those who were given grants along the Ganges by Ballāl Sena were called Ganggopādhyāya (literally 'the Vedic teachers in the regions around the Ganges').

The ancestors of Gangulys are from a hermit or saint called Savarna Muni, and thus all Gangulys have the same Savarna Gotra, which means they are from the same ancestral root.
