Nārāyaṇadāsa (नारायणदास) is an example of a name based on the Nara form of God mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Derivation of personal names (e.g., Nārāyaṇadāsa) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.
