Suzuki Name Meaning

Japanese: variously written, usually with characters meaning ‘bell tree’, the name is probably taken from Japan’s lovely pampas grass, susuki. An alternate pronunciation is Susuki. This is one of the two most common surnames in Japan, the other being Sato. Legend says that one Suzuki family descended from a priestly line named Hozumi, of Kumano in present-day Mie prefecture. The Hozumi, in turn, are listed in the Shinsen shojiroku and claim descent from the Mononobe clan.
