The last name "Arora" comes from a region of India that was originally called Aror but is now called Rohri. "Bhandari" relates to a profession, as it means both "treasurer" and "keeper of the storehouse." "Chowdhury" is also a professional last name, meaning "holder of four." One possible profession this name references is a military leader who commands four forces.
