This time, about Marathi surnames.
“In Maharashtra and Gujarat, the naming system is very similar to the first-middle-last format followed in the western world. e.g. “Sunil Manohar Gavaskar”, here “Sunil” is the (first) name of the person. “Manohar” is the father’s name, which is often abbreviated as an initial, and “Gavaskar” is the last or family name. Traditionally, women take their husband’s name as their middle name and also adopt his family name.”
Clearly, the total number of surnames in India itself tends to infinity, independent of the region, but a generic observation of our surroundings will clearly illustrate that Maharashtrian surnames itself contribute as an infinitely large set.
