The surname Dubash is derived of two terms, ‘Dua’ meaning
two and ‘Bhash’ meaning language, meaning the one who knows
two languages. Dadabhai Hormusji Dubash perhaps was an
interpreter of two languages, Parsi and Chinese. He also received
the title of Khan Bahadur for distinction in the same, on May 25,
1892 in Bombay.
