My husband surname is Zhigalov (a) female version with a (a) at the end. Zigalov is another version of the name. My husband great grandfather was in a orphanage when he was a baby born in Ukraine I guess 1900's.

I've been trying to find what the meaning and the origin of the surname Zhigalov/Zigalov (a) as it's not one the common Russian surname. Any information would be a great help
