India history and geography

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

Upamita (उपमित) is an example of a Śaivite name mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. Classification of personal names according to deities (e.g., from Śaivism) were sometimes used by more than one person and somehow seem to have been popular. 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., Upamita) during the rule of the Guptas followed patterns such as tribes, places, rivers and mountains.
