Rajeev Hundoo says Handoo is also written as Handu and Hundoo. My forefathers have been writing Hundoo as Surname. This was changed to distinguish them selves from practicing Pandits/Gurus to scholars and who took service other than religion. My Great Great Grandfather Pt. Mehtab Rai Ji Hundoo, a great scholar of Sanskrit and Persian migrated from Kashmir and Joined the Court of Maharaja of Punjab as Minister.
