India history and geography

Source: archive.org: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions

Rāmadāsa (रामदास) is an example of a name based on Rāma mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. Lord Rāma is believed to be the seventh incarnation of Viṣṇu. Rāma occurring in our inscriptions seems to have been Rāma Rāghava. 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., Rāmadāsa) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.
