Indian naming conventions still puzzle me. If I could read sanskrit a little better I wouldn't have so much trouble, but my study of the Vedas and Upanishads didn't get as far with Dr. Calhoun as I would have liked while I was at IWU.

From what I understand in India during late period times (during the first british encursions into india) is you would have had a first name in sanskrit (usually a descriptor or the altered name of one of the pantheon) , or a last name/familial name. It was possible to have both, but in that case only one would be used... However all people were also required to have an english name to be known as as well.

I think I need someone with more knowledge.
