Keralite name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Keralite names.

The Keralite people, also known as the Malayali people, are an ethnic group in India with a population of over 33 million people. They live primarily in the state of Kerala in southern India, but large populations of Keralite people can also be found in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The area they live in has a rich history of (spice) trade dating back to at least the Roman era, and has resulted in a lot of diversity and opennness to diversity among the Keralite people.

Keralite names are diverse too, especially the more modern ones as they often borrow elements from other cultures. Traditional names are similar to names from other Sanskrit based languages, but differences aren't too difficult to spot.
Surnames are often created by simply using the father's name, just the initial of the father's name, or using the initial of the mother's name and the full father's name. So a name might be M. Vadish Nayan, for example, where M. is the mother's initial, and Nayan is the father's name. This generator simply uses a male name as a surname.
