Indian names have a similar pattern to Western names. The given name comes first and the family name follows. Sometimes there is a middle name, which is usually the father’s name.
Many Indian surnames are related to the caste system. People in Indian society are divided into four castes according to their occupation, namely Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaisya, and Sudra.
– The Brahmin, whose task is to master and impart knowledge and administer sacrifices, have the highest rank.
– The role of the Kshatriyas (ranked second) is to hold the throne, to serve as soldiers, and to defend society.
– The Vaisya, whose task is to run commerce and agriculture, are the third class.
– The task of the Sudras is to serve the above three types of people. Artisans and craftsmen belong to this category, and they have the lowest social status.
Some surnames used by each caste are exclusive and caste-role-related, and therefore they indicate the family’s caste status. For example, surnames used by the Brahmin are generally related to the Vedas, the Hindu classics, the major gods, or words denoting dignity.
