Sorry to clutter up the mailboxes with another mail on the same topic. This

Why not? I mean, I don't include the 'current' names, some of which are
three random syllables strung together, in search of a meaning.

Don't names 'almost always' have a meaning, even if unbeknownst to the namesake?

Starting with Bapa Rao, how about a list of names that are as of now
mysterious, as far as their meaning!

>Also how did this Rao got into telugu culture?  Just curious.

Does(n't) 'Rao' have some maharAshTrian overtones?
