Rāmapāṇivāda (रामपाणिवाद) (18th Century) was a scholar of multi discipline, who flourished in Kerala in the 18th Century. He was a prolific writer both in Sanskrit and Prakrit. He was a resident of Killikkuriśśimaṅgala and nephew of Rāghava, who was also an erudite scholar. He received the patronage of many kings and chieftains. Some scholars like Ullur and others identify Rāmapāṇivāda as the famous Malayalam poet Kuñcan Nampyār, but this identification is refuted profusely by Raja, where he ascribes Rāmapāṇivāda as the senior contemporary of Kuñcan Nambiyār.
