    How can I read about this information. My maiden name is Giza and would like to learn more information about my heritage.

      You commented on a webpage which is about a film which has your maiden name in it, but I don’t think there is any information in the film about the name itself. Just a person who bear the same name. I recommend asking a genealogist or etymologist.
