  1. German and
    Swiss German: Variant of Gans
  2. German: From a short form of the Germanic personal name
    Ganso, a cognate of modern German ganz ‘whole’, ‘all’.
  3. German: Possibly also from an altered form, under Russian
    influence, of the personal name Hans, a short form of
    Johannes (see John).
  4. Jewish (Ashkenazic):
    Ornamental name from German ganz ‘whole’.  
I hope this helped!!!
