List of Town Names from where Raju’s Last Names were derived

 

Like almost all communities in India, almost all of the surnames come from the village that they lived in. The members of the Raju caste have names derived from their ancestral town of origin. The most commonly used suffixes to every settlement and their meaning is given.

 

  1. -adri (Sanskrit) hill E.g., Narayanadri, Anjanadri.
  2. -cheruvu (Telugu) lake.
  3. -dham Temple E.g., Baidyanathdham, Gandhidham.
  4. -durg Fort. E.g., Nandidurg, Jaladurg.
  5. -eshwar,-eshwaram (Sanskrit ishwar), godlord. E.g., Ankleshwar, Rameshwaram.
  6. -giri (Sanskrit) mountain. E.g., Chandragiri.
  7. -gudi (Kannada) temple. E.g., Basavanagudi.
  8. -gunta (Telugu) lake. E.g., Renigunta.
  9. -gutta,-gudda (Telugu, Kannada) small hill, E.g., Panjagutta.
  10. -konda (Telugu) large hill. E.g., Golconda, Penukonda.
  11. -kot,-kota Fort or fortified town. E.g., Rajkot, Pathankot. Perhaps a variant of this is -kotla (‘fortification’).
  12. -madugu (Telugu) lake. E.g. Jammalamadugu.
  13. -mangalam (Tamil), perhaps a camp for soldiers. E.g., Needamangalam.
  14. -nagar (Sanskrit) town. E.g., Srinagar.
  15. -palli (Tamil/Telugu). Also -halli,-alli (Kannada). Village. E.g., Thiruchirapalli, Jalahalli.
  16. -palya,-palyam (Tamil) Fort E.g. Kalasipalyam.
  17. -patnam (Telugu) port. Several variant spellings. E.g., Masulipattanam.
  18. -pet,-pettai (Southern & western India). Marketplace. E.g., Hospet, Jolarpettai.
  19. -prolu (Telugu) village. E.g. Bhattiprolu, Gollaprolu.
  20. -pur,-puri,-pura,-puram,-pore (Sanskrit) town (walled city—may also mean a city with a citadel or palace). E.g., Kanpur, Thiruvananthapuram. Also Singapore!
  21. -ur,-oor,-uru,-ore (Tamil/Kannada/Telugu). village/town. E.g., Kadambur, Bangalore, Coonoor.
  22. -wada,-wara House. E.g., Bhilwada, Teliwara.

This is a list of the towns. Normally in Andhra Pradesh, from the town name an I, -pati, or Raju are added to the town name to come up with the family name. For example a person from Cherukuwada, Pakalapadu or Vegivada would have the family names of Cherukuri, Pakalapati and Vegiraju. Some towns were actually named after a certain family like Datlavarigudem, which means town of Datlas.
