Rāmasvāmin (रामस्वामिन्) 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., Rāmasvāmin) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.

Rāmasvāmī is another name for the Ramaswamy Temple in Kumbakonam (Kumbhakonam) which represents a sacred place for the worship of Viṣṇu.—The Ramaswamy (Rāmasvāmī) Temple in Kumbhakonam is renovated by Govinda Dikshita, a minister of the Nayaks of Tanjore. [According to the] sthala-purāṇa, the Ramaswamy (Rāmasvāmī) Temple was the place where Viṣṇu, as Sāraṅgapāṇi, married Goddess Lakṣmī as Kōmal a Valli. Therefore, this place is also called Kalyāṇapuram. As Sūrya Deva worshipped in this sthala, this place is also called Bāskara Kṣetra. Scenes from the Ramayana are painted in glowing colours on the walls of the prahāras.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
