  3. My late father-in-law was the son of a Marathi in the Kings African Rifles, Zomba, Malawi in the 1900-1914 period. We know nothing of him and would appreciate whether anyone knows a Marathi family name Lulker or anything that sounds like that. We are trying to research family roots.

  4. I want ask you about a surname “Manney”… I have never heard of this name…Is it a Marathi surname? And also please let me know the meaning of the surname..please let me know if you know this as soon as possible.

  5. hey hi people.. especially kanak….its a really gud thing u have a gud collection of names…but the meanings are hardly of any relevance…like the names are marathi and some meanings are hindi..for instance my surname is GADHE and it is pronounced as GAA..DEY in marathi…no resemblence to pronunciation of donkey in hindi….we belong to one of the 96 clans of shivaji maharaj who fought with them in foundation of swarajya……GADHE in marathi mean “deep thinkers and learned people” the phrase “gadhe abyasak “ i want you to respect our names and history . As ur mockery cant change our history nor our existence…but remember that each person values his name and knows his own meaning of name …kindly respect your names!
