Caste is a scientifically classified social structure.

Caste is determined by Disposition, not by birth.

For details read my posts on Caste System.

Surnames are indicative of the Caste.

This is how the Caste name is to be used.

Brahmins are to use ‘Sharma’,

Kshatriyas, ‘Varma,

Vaisyas, ‘Gupta’

I am furnishing the Brahmin surnames in different States of India,

Please inform me for inaccuracies and suggest improvement.

I shall be posting Kshatriya, Vaisya Surnames as well.

  2. Dear Sir, Your website is very informative.I was searching for My Kuldevata when i came accross your website,I was told by my elders that our kuldevta is Devkikrishna in Malshej Goa but they dont know the gotra just assume it to be kaushik, I checked on your website the surname Murdeshwar but is does not highlight any deity.If our kuldevta is Shri Devakikrishna then whom should we follow Shano or Pisso Rawalnath.Can you please help me out.My native is in Durgakeri Honavar, North kannada-karnataka Dharwad.

  3. Very Informative post.
    I have a question for which you may know the answer, my father tells me our surname was Shenvi Salkar as per the documents of my forefather around 100 years ago, later it changes to Kantak.

    How and why it changed is a mystery, do you have any insights, Please share.

    thanks & regards
    Kausthub

    • Can you tell me your Gothra and what was your grand father.forefather’s profession?
      Some times Brahmins engaged in other professions do change their surnames.
      If I get information from you I shall try to clarify
