List of all shivalli family names

The family houses of Shivalli Brahmins had a direct bearing on these 32 villages. Family names of Shivalli Brahmins itself is a fantastic story. The Shivalli Brahmins community which lived in a compact geographical area measuring 100 k.m. width and 120 k.m. length, had more than 500 family names to it’s credit – is nothing but amazing. Perhaps, a small community like this may not have such a diversified order of family houses in the whole world. Most of the family names have direct relationship with their respective names of their geographical location.

Here we have listed almost all Shivalli family names. Please let us know if we have missed any family name or there is a mistake. This list has been taken from “Kula-Gotra-Pravara-Sootra-Shakha Soochi” book written by Shri B. S. Okunnaya and published by Bollimbala Okunnaya Prathishtana.

  1. Naresh Beedu

    Hello, I am really glad to see such a beautiful website about taulava samaaja.

    I also wanted to mention that my family name isn’t mentioned above. Please add in “Beedu”. And secondly, the website is very beautifully designed, but in the tool bar above, English is wrongly typed as Englesh. A change is required out there.

    Thanks.

  2. K Rajaneesh Saralaya

    Dear All,
    This website is really very useful. Above family name collection is magnificent. I would like to add on to this information. Please let me know the mode of ECS donation is possible in Indian Rupees. Thank You,
    Raja.

  3. Narayan

    I want to know the place and other details of the family with the name POTI which appears above. Can you please let me know.

    Thanks in advance and regards,

  4. Anil Kumar Bhat

    hi we can have a section where we can ask users to register across depending on their family names. For example i am Sittillaya and we can have a subgroup of this so as we can trace our relatives

    Thanks in advance

  5. K.U.SADANANDA RAO/KUNIKULLAYA

    I had a glance of the shivalli family names published in your website. Thanks. Very useful and also came up well. I noticed, our family name, shivalli Brahmins, Tulu speaking – KUNIKULLAYA – predominantly from Kasaragod Taluk, formerly a part of Dakshina Kannada Dist. ( now in Kerala state) did not find a place in your list. May I request you to please include it in the list at your earliest.

    Further, family names of the following to be correctly spelt as :
    KADAMBALITHAYA
    PUNICHITHAYA
    Family name of YERKADITHAYA did not find a place in your list, which my be noted.

    This is my humble suggestion.

  6. Vedavyasa Acharya

    I am not sure of this surname but i heard “Okade” …please clarify it …

  7. Sachin

    In List of all shivalli family names category “Yelachithaya” is missing. you can add this.

  8. govinda raj joisa

    thanks.. I had a glance of the shivalli family names published in your website. In list “Joisa”(surname) is missing. whether joisa is only surname or it also comes under family name

  9. admin

    Thank you for your information’s. I have added Kunikullaya, Yelachithaya.

    @Anil Kumar Bhat
    Thank you for your interest. Please go through the link

  10. R SRIKRISHNA RAO

    I COUDNT FIND MY FAMILY NAME HERE COULD YOU PLEASE ADD IT IT IS CALLED KEMMAR THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

  11. Venkatesh Rao

    I love the work done in this website… But it would be even better if it is possible to create a family tree for each family name…

    Like great great great grandfather–>great great grandfather–>….–>father–>you…

    It can be designed where the viewers can update their family details in the page…

    But for that it would be better to create an user account first…

  12. Anand G

    Dear All,
    Its a great website for knowing our culture and roots. My family name happen to be sittillaya and am interested in tracing the roots of our people with this faily name. How can I contact others with this family name.?
    Keep up the good work
    Anand

  13. Vishu

    Hi Guys
    fantastic work done by u…
    i cant belive that shivalli community has 520 sub group
    i heard a surname called Pajatthaya ….. which doesnt find place here
    may be u can add the same.

    Thanks
    Vishu

  14. Vineetha

    Isn’t Rao a recognized family name?

  15. Ganesha Mogeraya

    I don’t think names like Rao, Bhat, Acharya, Tantri/ Thantr, iAsranna are the recognised family names.
    As an example Persons who does Pooja at Temples are re-surnamed as Asranna.

    Hope I am right.

    With Thanks & Regards

    Ganesha Mogeraya

  16. SUBRAMANYAM

    hi thank u very much.see my full name is Y.H.SUBRAMANYAM RAo(YELLUR HALEPATALI SUBRAMANYAM RAO)IN THIS WHICH IS SUR NAME & WHICH IS FAMIY NAME.PLS CLARRIFY IT THANK U

  17. vadiraj vakillaya

    add laxmishobhane hadu in your great site -thankyou

  18. V. N. Rao

    A very good site indeed giving details of Shivalli brahmin community. It was really amazing to such a large number of family names in the community. I would like to know from knowledgeable members whether Nekkar is the short from of family name Nekkantaraya.

  19. V. N. Rao

    In my opinion, Ayya is not a family name(open to corrections). The word is used as a mark of respect when addressing “Dhanigalu”(landowners). Thus Ayya got affixed to the names of persons at the end eg. Krishnayya, Raghunathayya, Narasayya etc. Later on, the family name was introduced like Nekkar – short form of Nekkantaraya with its origin in a hamlet called Perampalli, near Manipal in Udupi District. The full name of a person began with Perampalli and ended with Rao. For instance, Perampalli Nekkar so and so Rao. From the above it can be concluded that Rao is also not a family name. In all probability, Rao originated from Raya. Thus Ramaraya became Rama Rao and Venkatraya became Venkat Rao. The origin of Raya can be traced back to Vijayanagara King Krishnadevaraya.

  20. karthik mariyanna

    congrats for starting this website.even my surname is not in the list its MARIYANNA

  21. K.N.ADIGA-ADOOR

    Dear Mr. Ranjith

    Thanks for doing good work. Hope many people joinind. I have obseved people asking for the family tree details. But it will be difficult unless concerned people taking interest and submitting. Like Mr. Sripathi B.S doing the Kedilaya family tree. I Also heard Some Baipaditaya also tried for that. Please also clarify the some family names similar in Koota and Shivalli. Like Adiga, Aithala etc. But have clarified Adiga (shivalli)
    because of the Devara Adidavarege Pooja maduvavaru (Clarified by Vidvan Punichitaya). We are Kekunnaya.

    Thanks and regards

    Adiga K N

  22. Thejaswi V K

    can you add ‘kundanthaya’ as a surname. we have our village situated at kunjoor on the way to admar. i couldn’t find the above surname.

  23. Laxmikantha

    There is a request for adding Yelachithaya. But I feel this is same as Elchithaya which is already in the list. (pronouncing is same in both the cases). If anybody knows better please clarify this.

  24. Ravikiran Saralaya

    Can somebody let me know as to who is the ‘KULADEVATHA’, I heard is specific for Saralayas. I was asked for during a pooja and I didnt know.

  25. shrinidhi

    Hi,

    Its a great effort.My sir name is Bairy.I think it is also comes under SHIVALLI FAMILY.Could you add this in the list.

    Regards,
    shrinidhi

  26. Krishnamurthy Bhat

    Dear Mr. Ravikiran,
    Sri Vishnumoorthy of “Kodangala” ahead of Alevoor is “Kuladevatha” for Saralayas. It is not Moodu Alevooru Vishnumoorthy, but Kodangala, also known as “Puli Devasthana” probably has its origin in Sage “Pulinda.” This temple is the “Kuladevatha” of three Kulas i.e. Kadamballitthaya, Manjitthaya and Saralaya. Unfortunately I am not sure whether ALL Saralayas worship this as their Kuladevatha, but I have seen many Saralayas believing this to be their family deity. The Paddana of our panjurli daiva also has some references of this fact.
    By the by, I am Kadamballitthaya.

  27. Sanjay

    Dear Sir,

    Please inform us about the family tree of Aralithaya. As per my knowledge, it is a very small family situated at Kasaragod District. I want to know the origin of the surname also

  28. Prof.Balakrishna Kalluraya

  29. V.K.Ganesan

    Namaskara,

    I am Ganesan and my gotharam is Vishwamithra gothram. My fathers’ name is Krishnan and has one elder brother and one younger sister. My grand fathers’ name is Vishnu and he was working as Revenue Inspector in Udupi, Murudeshwar and Sirsi. My grand mothers’ name is Kalyani. Both of them are no more. My grand father died around 1936-37.

    I want to know about the relatives on my grand fathers’ side (may be in Karnataka (or) in Kerala) in order to find out my “KULA THEVARU”. Since, I don’t Know the Kulathevaru, I am worshipping Vishnu/ Tirupati Venkatachalapathy Perumal as my Kulathevaru.

    Please let me know about my Kulathevaru and the place where it is situated.
    I hope you will help me in this matter.

    Expecting a positive response

    V.K.GANESAN

  30. Murali Madhavachar.B

    Hi,
    Its really good website, with lots of information which we do not know, and I especially got to know about the Surnames.
    Can you please add more information on pooja veedhana & hacharane and about few festivals celebrated by Shivalli brahmins.

    Thanks ,
    Murali M Achar.

  31. Krishnamurthy Bhat

    Dear Mr. Ganesan,
    It is near impossible to know about your “Kuladevaru” from the details you have given. One option would be know your grand father’s surname (not the acquired surnames like Rao, Bhat etc, but one from the list above) and ask the people about “Kuldevata” of that family or show your gf’s horoscope to a learned jyothishi and learn the “Kuladevata”. If you keep searching like this, you may be fooled by some people also.

  32. Ravi Raj Rao

    This is a very good effort made by you, to gather all informations about Shivalli Brahmins .
    Shivalli Brahmins originally rooted in different places of South Kanara. The speciality of Shivalli Brahmins is thier mother tongue – TULU. Shivalli brahmins are , if you go back to your family history , can find out that they are either Purothiths, Archaka’s of Temples, and Teachers ( Acharyas) in Gurukulas.
    Each Shivalli family has got their own Kuladevaru. Some have even their own Kula Devasthana. I belong to PARLATHAYA FAMILY and our root is near RamaKunja, Puttur Raluk. We have our Kuladevasthana , near Ramakunja Grama, a place called Kondappade. and our Kuladevaru – Sri Anantha Padmanabha. the temple is well known as KONDAPPADE ANANTHA PADMANABHA TEMPLE.
    Lot of research has been done in our PARLATHAYA FAMILY TREE AND ITS HISTORY by one of our family memebr SRI K. BALAKRISHNA ACHAR, a retired teacher who has won National Award for Best Teacher. We , Parlathayas , gathered together about 14 years back and formed an association whcih is now called as ‘PARLATHAYA PRATHISHTANA’ .

  33. Ravi Raj Rao

    And we meet every year on May 1 st . this year our Sneha Samavesha will be held at Bhagamandala, Madikeri dist. on 2nd may 2009. ( due to election it will be held on 2 nd , instead of 1 st. May) Shri Anantha Bhat and sons, the Kshethra Purohith of Bhagamandala is hosting this Samavesha.
    The Parlathaya Prathishtana was formed with 2 objectives. One, to renovate our Kula Devasthana. This has been done on two phases, during the year 2002 and 2006. Further development is ongoing. Second, to gather all the Parlathayas scattered all over India and abroad. So far we have been able to collect details of more than 500 members ( including direct and connected members. ) We have published a directory – HELLO PARLATHAYA- containing address/telephone/e-mail details of our family members and its still getting updated.
    Regarding the Kula Namas given in this website, some names are repeated with different spellings as they are differently pronounced, but are one and the same. for eg. Elachithaya /Yelachithaya. Names like Adiga, Bhat, Rao, Achar, Tantri are not Kula Namas but they denote one’s profession.
    I wish all the best to the hosts of this Website.
    RAVI RAJ RAO

  34. shailesh

    i am kedilaya i want to know about my family tree & our kuldevata

  35. Madhyastha Hariskumar

    I am Harishkumar Madhyastha of Sankada kallu madhyastha family (Hungarcutta-picode 576218) of Udupi district, suposed to be origin of madhyastha family. In some cases we get madyastha as surname. Is it spell mistake or entirely and new class of madhyastha family.
    Hope one will give clarify this

  36. Sumanth Madambadithaya

    Hi,

    I am also interested in knowing our Kuladevatha. We are the Madambadithaya basically of Sorake (Puttur taluk) origin. Regarding our family name I am not too sure if it is pronounced as Madambadithaya or Mudambadithaya or Moodambadithaya? Could somebody clarify on this? I use Madambadithaya in my name. Even in Madambadithaya I heard that there are of two gothras one is Vishvamitra and another one is Bhargava. We are of Vishvamitra gothra.

    I also request all the Shivalli brahmins to please use their family names. We should be proud to use our family names. If we do not make it now our younger generations will not be knowing their family names.
    I realized this and hence I use my family name in all the places wherever required. I was known as Sumanth Rao M in school records but these days I prefer to use Sumanth Madambadithaya (in email signatures, letters etc). May be our parents or grand parents did not want to use such long family names to their children’s name hence would have shortened it by just adding the initials (like M in my case for Madambadithaya). Hence would have used surnames like Rao, Bhat etc. It is time to change now and start using the family names.

    Thanks
    Sumanth Madambadithaya

  37. vasudha saralaya

    For the first time I happened to visit this site and am truly impressed with the same. I too would be glad if someone could draw up the saralaya family tree. I am a saralaya by marriage and am keen to know more about the saralayas elsewhere. I am residing in mangalore

  56. vinod

    Hi,
    Thanks for good, exhaustive and all the hard word done. Let me add few information. My father is from Kodavoor and the name is Rayasa Kodavoor Balakrishna Rao. As I heard from my grand parents, Vijayanagara Emperor, Krishnadevaraya (basically a “tulu” Arasa or King) preferred Shivalli Brahmins for the day to day running of the kings’ court and kingdom’s affairs. Shivalli Tulu Brahmins were employed in the court for various positions like finance, Revenue, Tax etc., One particular group with sir name “RAYASA” were exclusively serving the affairs related to neighbouring provinces & kingdoms (like external affairs). For this purpose, Krishnadevaraya, had given “Umbali’ s like farm lands, cattle and fleet of horses etc.,

I also would want to add that there exists another family name not included in the list. Its my family name : PAJITHAYA

MURUID’s GROUP OF HOTELS AND OTHER BUSINESS HOUSES ARE PLENTY IN CHENNAI.
    GOTHRA IS ANGEERASA. DESCENDANT GOTHRAS OF ANGEERASA ARE FOUND AMONG MARADITHAYA AND MARDILLAYA. THE ORIGIN OF THESE MARADITHAYA, MURUIDITHAYA, MARDILLAYA, MURADITHAYA IS FROM ” MARUDITHAYA “, AS MENTIONED IN SKANDA PURAANA. KORNAYA, BANNINJATHAYA, MARUDITHAYA AND SHIVATHAYA ARE THE FOUR FAMILIES WHO WERE THE GURIKARAAS AMONG SHIVALLI COMMUNITY. THE TRADITION CAN BE SEEN (EXCEPT BANNINJATHAYA) – IN PADUBIDRI GRAAMA. MURUDITHAYAs THINK THAT THEY ARE HAVING KULADEVAS IN DIFFERENT PLACES. BUT THE ONLY TEMPLE WHICH HAS SOME TRACEABLE PROOF IS ALEVOORU VISHNUMURTHY AS FAMILY DIETY AND PERAMPALLI MAHALINGESHWARA AS TANTRIC DIETY. JYOTHISHA IS INHERITED PROFESSION AND TANTRA IS AWARDED (BY THE KING) PROFESSION OF MURUDITHAYAS.

    Nice to see this one, we all should be united to achive our requirements

  70. Dr.Amrut K.Rao

    hello,
    am glad to see such a beautiful website about our community… thank you all.

  71. Harikrishna Murudithaya

    The list in this site contains so many Sirnames which are neither basic nor branch sirnames. For e.g., Adiga, Ayya, Beedu, Ballal, Basuri, chikkaraya, dhanya, kinni etc. These are either profession related or personality related. However these people may not be knowing their basic sirnames since their forefathers have not passed on the same to next generation. It is advisable to everybody, to jot down whatever they know and make it available to their next generation. At least, a person can collect information about his ancestors, families with same sirname in other places, so that any descendents in future, if interested, can investigate and bring the unknown facts to light.
    Another information … Any person who is not at all knowing about his kuladevata… may go to Perampalli (Shivalli) and pray there. It is the place for all. If any higher plane is required one can go to Ahichhatra of Northern Panchala, near Ramnagar Village of Anola Tehsil in Bareilly of UP – which the route of all Brahmins of Coastal except for origins of matti village near Kapu.
    Friends … feed me whatever you have in your knowledge.. so that I can pass on to my son.

  72. Vijayendra

    “Das” Surname belongs to Shivalli Madhwas?

  74. Prasanna Kannaraya

    Hi,

    This website is really a good one. It took me back to my place for some time. Can any one tells me exact “KULADEVARU” for my below said details. We are really confused. I also did spoke to “Subramaya Swamiji”. But he told me to contact in Krishna Matta to get the clarity:
    Kula NAme: KANNARAYA
    Gothra: ANGIRASA

  75. Muraleekrishnan

    Heartening to see the site. Good work. Could you kindly help redefining the respective familiy trees?

    Regards

  76. Muraleekrishnan

    Better to treat “Kula” and family names separately. This could help tracing the roots.

  79. Harikrishna Murudithaya

    Hello Brothers and sisters,

    Happy news for u. one day Kodi and Utsav of Shivalli (pErampalli) MahAlingEshwara temple
    is said to be conducted on 02-03-2010. Kodi will be descended on 03-03-2010. Unique
    opportunity to have whole festival on single day. Sri Narasing Rao, care taker in the temple
    informed that food and shelter shall be made available. There are buses plying between
    Udupi city B/s to the temple. I feel, it is a finite place for all those who do not know
    the “KULA DEVARU”. For further details, contact 09343060077 or 0820-2529670 – Narasing Rao.

  80. Sreeshan

    Excellent! A few remarks based on the above. I am an Udupa from Kunjoor, near Paniyur. As mentioned here above by somebody, the Kundanthayas are very much there in Kunjoor. It is mentioned as Kumdanthaya in the list.

    Also the Shivalli brahmins were invited by Kings of Kerala as Purohits there and many of them went there. We will find them throughout Kerala. There is a high concentration of Shivally Brahmins in Tripunithura near Kochi, and in Thiruvananthapuram, both being the capital of two kingdoms Cochin and Travancore, those days.

    The Shivalli brahmins came to be known as either Embranthiry or Potty(or Poti as mentioned above by somebody). Is it appropriate to add these names to the list?

  81. karthik bhat(moodathya)

    hi the surname like bhat, achar, rao, tantri , upadya this come from the proffesion like
    bhat – who do pooja and other rituels
    achar – who teach the vedas and othere scripture to swami
    rao – who manage the temple
    tantri – who make tantra work in temple
    upadya – who teacher

  82. karthik bhat(moodathya)

  83. Shreedhara Ballullaya

    Hi,

    It is amazing collection of surnames and information of Shivalli Brahmins. May I know any Ballullaya’s settled in Pune/Mumbai?

  84. Harikrishna Murudithaya

    Hello Brothers / sisters and friends,

    The Brahmakalasha of Shivalli (perampalli) Temple is being conducted shortly. Shivalli
    is the place for all shivalli brahmins where they were initially brought and kept by mayoora verma and later distributed between 32 villages (dwaathrimshat gramaas). Hence it is our place. The function is our function and any contribution towards the said punyakaarya certainly rewards punya. If you are willing to contribute, here is the detail:-

    The temple has opened one A/c for the purpose, with corporation bank, Perampalli Branch.
    The details are:-

    Name :- “Shri Shivalli Shri Mahalingeshwara Mahaganapathi Devasthana (R) Brahmakalashothsava Samithi”

    FTS No. CORP0002094
    A/c No. SB01001212

    Amount can either be directly credited to A/c or transferred online or cheque, DD can be drawn in favour of the above said name and sent to Shri Narasing Rao, Mahalingeshwara Mahaganapathi Temple, Perampalli, Udupi.

    Best wishes to all.

    To promoto Shivailli Brahmins culture its a great website. But all the things told in the website about culture is great…no doubts every rule has an exception – mudambadithaya’s of bhargava gotra based out of kanchana…who boast so much of tulu culture but damn it cheat girls abroad, liars, and dump girls…..the great person is shreesha mudambadithaya..

    I have nothing to do but beware of such cheaters..i wud say not all are bad but there are some like this. Even before we talk of culture and roots of the family we should be better informed of being good humans !!!

  110. Pradyumna

    In this ”KADAMANNAYA” is missing..

  111. Ramesh

    As Sri Vedavyasa Acharya pointed out, the surname “Okade” is missing. But as Mr. Rajaram Okade pointed out, Okade and Okunnayya are being used interchangeably.

    I am Ramesh, and my grandfather is from badaNediyoor near Udupi. We are “Bhat”s but were given the honorific “Potti” when my grandfather moved to Trivandrum. Our Kuladevathe is Inna Muddanna (Shiva) and Mundkur Durga Parameshwari. We are Yajurvedis.

    My mother’s side are Shivallis from Mattu Graama settled in Trivandrum for a few generations.

    Mrs. Shobana Upadhya, I have heard that the Inna/Mundkur temples are the Moola Kula Devasthanas for all Bhargava Gotra Shivallis from South Kanara. It must be your family’s as well.

    I had a query for Bhargava Shivalli Yajurvedis here – what is our Veda Shaakha? Do we belong to Krishna or Shukla yajurveda? I believe we are Bodhayana Sutra as well, as that is how I was taught. Can anyone confirm?

    Thanks,
    Ramesh

  112. Kandethody Ramachandra

    This is a worthy effort. There is a large group of Sivalli people in Kasaragod area with last name “Kekunnaya”. Please add to the list.

    Thanks,

    I am curious to know what actually you mean by “jaati”. Are you referring to “varna” of Acharya or “family name”? It is very clear in the biography that Acharya was “born” to brahmin parents.

    Thanks for your article. It is rather unfortunate that over the last years, the travel industry has had to tackle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine flu, and the first ever entire global recession. Through all this the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient plus dynamic, obtaining new tips on how to deal with trouble. There are constantly fresh troubles and possibilities to which the marketplace must once more adapt and react.

  129. Bhaskara Chekkeraya

    Nice to see Chekkeraya surname in the list , to which I belong to. But as per my knoledge chekkeraya family is existing in a village called BADAJE ( near Manjeshwar , Kasaragod).

    Where is the base for kalloorayas,
    what is the name of the bootha (deiva) for kalloorayas – viswamithra gothra

  134. Ravi Prakash

    Dear Moderator,

    Its a good job. Request you to change Shibafrooraya to Shibarooraya / Shibaraya.

    1. Many of the names are repeating,
    2, There is difference between kulanaama and surname. Some of the names mentioned are simply a name of their residing place, its not kulanama
    3. If some one mention it as Acharya / Achar – but their kulanama will be different one. For Eg: We use surname as acharya, but our kulanama is Shibarooraaya/ Shibaraya. Some Asrannas belongs to Nadvanthillaya, Paduvetnaya / moodannaya are to Arimanithaya kula …… The same willbe in the case of bhat, rao and tantry (generic – proffessional ).
    4. Some of the names purely of kundapur side brahmins, not shivalli – kota
    5. I have observed in many cases, most of so called kulanamas changed after it was clarified at the time of ashtamangala prashne or searching kuladaiva, nagabana etc
    There is not much of 500 kulanamas, if we think practically, there is 400+ brahmin families in belthangady taluk, 300+ in Bantwal tq, 800 + in Puttur Tq, 1600+ in udupi + karkala tq, then how come it is more than 500 kulanamas?

    Each kulanama is belongs to one of 10 mutts of SK, every mutt should declare that, as per their records, which mutt for a particular kulanama people
    thanks

  168. divya

    Hi al…

    Thanks for this information. It helped me a lot because i wanted to know a lot about this.
    Actually i am planning to marry a person who is a shivalli tulu brahmin. I am a telgite based from andhra. His parents are very stringent about cast. Is there any way i can convert into the same cast as his? If there are any rituals and there is anything more, am ready for all that.
    Please share the information if anybody knows about it.

    Thanks,
    Divya reddy

  169. Shubha

    I belong to Adhikari Family from Matti . But I see that the surname is not included .

    I would like to learn Shivalli Brahmin Tulu . Can you suggest the web site from where I can learn the same . Since I was brought up in Mangalore I mix up both Shivalli Brahmin Tulu & the local Tulu

  170. Balachandra

    Shubha ji,

    You must be joking! Tulu or any language for that matter cannot be learnt from website! You must interact with people speaking that language. Mangaluru is not a bad place for learning brahmin tulu. There is quite a population of shivalli tulu brahmins in that town, speaking pure brahmin tulu. You should find out.

  171. Balachandra

    Divya Reddy ji

    I am happy to know that you want to learn tulu rituals and possibly the language too, at least for the sake of your beloved. Good luck to you.
    Further, there is no ritual to convert from one caste to another. Jaati or caste (not varna) is solely decided by birth. However, there is one possibility, don’t know if scholars will agree, you may be adopted as daughter by any willing brahmin parents, and they in turn can give you in marriage to your lover.

    I am Suhaas Madhyastha belonging to the Vishwamitra Gothra. We worship Mahisha Mardhini as our Kuladevaru and we visit the temple in Neelavara (Near Brahmavara) to offer our prayers once in a year. Hope this information helps the community.

  176. Vidya

    My father is from Kota Brahmin (Holla) family and my mother is Shivalli (Rao).Can I keep Rao as my surname?

  177. Vasudeva

    I wonder how ‘adapunnaya’ came as family name as ‘adapuna’ means ‘ploughing’ is not allowed as a profession in brahmins!

  178. Ravi Raj Rao

    Dear Ms. Vidya.
    First, it is our custom that we get the family name of our father.
    Second, you are a girl, and when you get married, your name gets your husband’s family name.
    This is your custom and why you need to change it now ? ( after all, Rao is not a original family name in Shivalli community. And in my case, I belong to Parlathaya family. Rao has come by error.)
    with best regards
    Ravi Raj Rao

  179. Niranjan Renjala Upadhyaya

    Hi,

    For Upadhyaya:
    Gotra – Angirasa
    Pravara – Angirasa-Ambarisha-Yuvanashva
    Sutra – Bodhayana (Not sure)
    Shakha – Yajus
    Kuladevaru – Lord Vishnumoorthy, Alevooru, Udupi
    Matha – Udupi Sodhe Matha

    Thanks
    Niranjan

  180. Arjun

    Mudithaya (Moodithaya)
    Gotra: Angirasa
    Pravara: Angirasa Ambarisha Yuvanashva

    I do not think that your kula dictates your gotra

  181. M Sudarshan

    Hello, Our ancestors were originally from (Kodavoor) Padamanoor, our gothra is angirasa. Our family name is Kekunaya. Could any body help us with our Kuludevaru and Devi.

  182. Sudhir Acharya

    The Kuladevatha for Kashyapa Gothra (All surnames, I am told) is Shri Aadhi Janardhana, Shimanthooru. I am sure about Shimanthuraya and Shibarooraya (I belong to Shibarooraya descent).

  183. venkatesan narayanan

    Good Work,
    I am from Madumannayya Family,
    Our grand father has settled in KERALA
    My father in his name he used as EMBRAN in Kerala
    But My name is only having initials of Father
    i also appreciate the presentation of the temples and photos
    also.
    At present I am working with a PSU in Mumbai.

  184. Arjun

    Harikrishna Murudithaya – can you explain what is tantric diety? You say that Perampalli is tantric diety and Alevooru Pulinda Vishnumurthy is kuladevaru….please elaborate on these temples too.

  185. Vasudeva

    Can anybody explain the difference between the surnames ‘Acharya’ and ‘Achar’!

  186. Ravi Raj Rao

    Dear Mr. Vasudev,
    I dont think there is any difference between ACHARYA and ACHAR. It is one and the same. Acharya is the original sanskrit word, and I believe it is a professional name derived by serving in Mutts ( like Pracharya) . I believe it is because of teaching vedas, shasthras etc. Later due to the english effect , it has become Achar. Again, please note that, Achar is not a Kulanama of shivalli Brahmins, it only denotes the family connections to some of the Mutts.

  187. Mandar

    Hi,

    I am 19 years old and from Wai in Maharshtra, our family speaks Marathi. But there is a story in our family that we were originally Tuluva Shivalli from a place near Udupi.

    Although we are now after 6 generations accepted as equal to other Marathi Brahmins like Deshastha and Karada, originally we were not treated at par with them. Like the Chitpavans we also have had to struggle a lot.

    Our Gotra is Kashyapa – Ashwalayanasutra – Rug Shakalashakha. We do not follow Madhva but are Smartha – perhaps because our original patrons were the influential Karada Brahmin – Patwardhana family of Rajapur.

    I want to find my Shivally roots in Udupi – I dont know ehere to start ? I have heard that there is a Karada Brahmin community in DK / Kasaragode. I am not sure if they are the same as Karada of Maharashtra. I hope thjat they might have a clue as one of them sponsored my ancestor’s migration to Rajapur / Wai.

    Any help welcome,

    Dear Sirs,I am Prasad Oppanthaya(Kulanama Sl.No:418)Our Kuladevathe-Sri.Durgaparameshwri,but we hava our own Temple of Sri Durga devi,in Udbhava linga roopa,beleived to be came fro Kashi kshethra after “Tapasya”of our fore fathers.Our Math is Sri.Sringeri Sharada Peetam,since Jagadguru of Srigeri used to stay in our home during their Digvijaya in ancient times,so naturally our ancestors became followers of the muth and that time,our ancestors had large amount of landed property and were being number one gramani family in Ujire grama of Belthangady Taluk.I got records dating back to year 905AD.I heartily thank you,who put great effort for this website.Hope you will update these information.(Mail-prp1050@gmail.com)

  194. Gurumoorthy R Shibaraya

    Namaskara,

    It is nice to see all details. Now days people will use bhat, Rao So they may forget their actual family name.

    I think Shibaraya is missing.
    Gotra: Kashyapa
    Pravara : Kashyapa- Avatsaara Naidruva
    Sutra : Ashwalayana
    Shakha : Ruk
    Kula Devaru: Shimantoor Adi Janardhana
    Mata : Puttige
    Aradya devaru: Kateel Durgaparameshwari.
    Ardya daiva : Shibaroor Kodamanitaya.
    Origin : Tibar or shibaroor

    I know few other surname/Family Name that are not in list,(Exactly I am not able to differentiate)
    Sarolithaya
    Kalkoora

    Thanks & Regards,
    Gurumoorthy R Shibaraya

  195. Sudhir Acharya

    @ Shri Gurumoorthy R Shibaraya: “Shibarooraya” and “Shibaraya” are the same. It is at Sl.No.500 of the list. Some of them (like me) are using “Acharya”.

  196. Gurumoorthy R shibaraya

    Shri Sudhir Acharya: Then add Shibaraya to that like- Shibaraya\shibarooraya. If you go shibaroor every body use only shibaraya. So please add that.

  197. Raghavendra

    We are Bhagavata of Kashyapa gotra but here they didnt given kashayapa gotra for Bhagavata please update kindly

  198. S.Narayana Shibaraya

    The Village in which Shibaraya family settled is called Shibaroor and not the other way round. Some of the family branches which left shibaroor long time ago had lost touch with the main branch incorrectly used the name shibarooraya while admitting their children to schools ( as they were not differentiating between shibaroor ans shibaraya) and this has led to a name Shibarooraya coming into usage. The Gotra is Kashyapa. I would like add that in the main branch there had recurring problem of no male successor and almost every second genration had to go for adoption for continuing the family lineage resulting very limited contact by the main family with other branches. Thus usage of alternate/ modified Surnames like Shibarooraya, Acharya etc. come into vogue. The main line still resides in Shibaroor and continues have the family name shibaraya and also the heredetory trusteeship of Kodamanthaya temple.

  199. S.Narayana Shibaraya

    thanks

  208. PLN Prasad Oppanthaya

    @Raghavendra Bhagavath,as you wrote there are few gothras which beleive certain God/Goddess as their diety.Here Kashyapa gothra to which I belong came to know that Seemanthur Adi Janardana is my “Gothra Devaru” and not kuladevaru.They both are different.My kuladevaru is sri Durga Parameshwari and Seemanthur Janardana is “Gothra devaru”.So you pls try to know which is your Kuladevaru.Regards.

  209. Venkatesh K.B.

    WOW !! This is a great site with enormous details!! Thanks a lot!

  210. Ravi Raj Rao

    From the information given by Shri Achada Hayavadana Puranik, it is clear that PURANIK is not a Kula Nama , but it is a Surname , Like Rao, Bhat, Achar.

    From the message of Shree PLN Prasad Oppanthaya, I got a new information that there is a “Gothra Devaru” other than Kula Devaru. If this is true, then most of the Shivalli Brahmins know only their “Gothra Devaru” and , but, not their “Kula Devaru” .

    Hi
    Am from Bharadwaja gothra, one and all just wanted to clarified about kuladevaru and gothradevraru, my recommendation is better all the seniors of family get together and perform astamangala prashna so that we will be clarified if you all agree upon this, I will organize the event and all of the family present in this event will have to share the charges incurred at actuals., and i will personally take care of the activities.. Pls mail me back at abhibhat@rediffmail.com

  216. Anudeep Upadhyaya

    Upadhyaya is not a original family name of shivalli brahmins, it is a “birudu” given by ‘RAJAS’ for the extraordinary performance in ‘vedapatana’ (Expertise in vedas) and Upadhyaya is being used by different families irrespective of their original surname.

    My original surname is “Polnaya”. My great great grandfather got Upadhyaya birudu from VITTLA (near Puttur) raja, so , then onwards our family is using that surname. And even i know some families who use ‘Upadhyaya’ but their original surname is different.

    So, it is not possible to have a unique gotra , sootra for Upadhyaya. So please remove it from list ( if only everybody agrees with it).

  217. muralidhar r tantry

    Hi all…,

    i stumbled upon this site while searching for some clue on our kuladevaru. I’m told recently by one of my uncles that we are “Manjithaya.” At that time, i didn’t take it too seriously because we were told by a couple of astrologers that “angirasa gotra” kuladevaru is “Alevoor Vishnumurthy” but now in this site i found Manjithaya family’s kuladevaru is “Kodangala Vishnumurthy.” it is time to trace back the origin as we were called acharyas once and now bhagavaths.., God help us. Any Manjithaya who is knowledgeable enough about “Manjithaya” can you help me please. Which is our gurumutt.., etc.., Can call me on 09482717318

    Hi to all

    The Kuladevaru (family diety) of all Shivalli Brahmin families of Aangeerasa and Harithasa gothra is SRI VISHNUMURTHY. The 1500 old holy keshethra is at Sri Vishnumurthy Devasthana, Muda Alevoor Village, Udupi District – 574 118, Phone 0820-2592224. But for Saralaya, Manjethaya and Kadambalithaya families Kuladevaru is SRI VISHNUMURTHY of Sri Vishnumurthy Devasthana, Padu Alevoor, Udupi District (very close to Muda Alevoor).

    As per few family source Kuladevatu is SRI DURGE, correctness not known.

    But understood from few experts that the Bhagavatha Sampradaya followers perform panchayathana pooja paddathi by worshiping Vishu (Akasha/Space), Eshwara (kShiti/Earth), Adithya (Vayu/Air), Ganesha (Jala/Water) and Ambika (Vahni/Fire).

    Can someone help me getting the clear picture of Kuladevata and our proper pooja paddathi. Hope worshiping Durga/Ambika as kuladevaru is also because of panchayathana paddathi.

    I belongs to Kedilaya family of Aaangeerasa Gothra, Aangeerasa Ambareesha Youvanashwa Pravara, Ashwalayana Suthra, Ruk Shakha.

    I am in the process of generating Kedilaya Family Genealogy.

  226. Rajaram Rao

    My father has bestowed on me a huge self respect for Shivalli as a community. A strong sense of fraternity evolves each time i meet a fellow shivalli. I am glad i chanced upon this site. Frankly ” Sandhya vandan” was a rote learned routine since the last 32 years till i came about the true meanings & their inter relationship in this site.

    :-Kashyape gotra, Ashvalayana sootra. Chekketaya as our family name. I am confused about the Pravara ( i keep chanting….Vratsanadi!! . I guess it is mispronounced. somebody help me with it please.), Polali Rajarajeshwari as our kula devi.

    Fraternal greetings to one & all.

    I tried to find out from Udupi Madam about the kuladevtha . They told me that for aangirasa gothram, Eravoor Mahavishnu is the kuldevatha. Somebody told me that some godess Devi is the kuldevi. Kindly help me to find out the kuladvatha.

    thanks- B.R.Haridasan, (haridasan.b.r.@gmail.com) 09818274328.

    I did not know that there are so many Shivalli Family names. A very informative site. I think my family name got distorted a little bit to Polinaya from the original name Polnaya. My hearty congratulations to the organizers.
