The data on 74 mudhali-s is interesting. Thanks to Mr. Srinivasan. I have tried for some time to find out the source for my last name. My dad, grandfather and other previous to him have/had initials "K. E." where K is for a village called Kunnavakkam and E for "Elayavalli". I would like to know if "iLaiyavilli" in 'komaandoor iLaiyavilli' (#72 in the list) is in any ways related to my last name (it was my decission to use Elayavalli as my last name). thanks -vke PS. the vialllage Kunnavakkam does not exist anymore (that's what my dad thinks). It was said to be very close to Kancheepuram.
