Okay, so I made a spelling goof =) It is Tiruman Kaappu in the subject line.

I vaguely remember that there is a tradition, that Sriman Narayana himself
came down and accepted initiation into SriVaishnavism from one of the acharyas
( presumably Udayavar) and took the name Sri Vaishnava Nambi from him.

Maybe the tirumaN kaappu was saathi-fied on Sriman narayana at this initiation,
and we reflect that in our temple iconography ? =)
