Ārya is an Old Indic and Old Iranian language term that first appeared in the ancient religious literature of the North Indians and of the Iranians. The term is significant to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Zoroastrians and Buddhists. The term has a variety of positive meanings, usually in spiritual contexts. It is not to be confused with the modern derived English adjective \"Aryan\", which has had a variety of meanings but is today mainly used by scholars in the context of the sub-branch of Indo-Iranian languages referred to as Indo-Aryan languages.
The term ārya is often found in Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain texts. In the Indian spiritual context it can be applied to Rishis or to someone who has mastered the four noble truths and entered upon the spiritual path. The religions of India are sometimes called collectively ārya dharma, a term that includes the religions that originated in India (e.g. Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma), Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism).

India is a country with numerous distinct cultures and language groups within it. Thus, Indian surnames, where formalized, fall into seven general types. And many people from the southern states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala do not use any formal surnames, though most might have one.

In Northern India, most of the people have their family name after the given names, whereas in Southern India, the given names come after the family name.

Patronymics and ancestry, where the father\'s name or an ancestor\'s given name is used in its original form or in a derived form (e.g. Aggarwal or Agrawal or Agrawala derived from the ancestor Agrasen).
In Eastern India like Odisha (formerly Orissa), West Bengal Occupation of ancestors were as per their Surnames (as per Hindu Community) like Sethi, Behera, Mallick, Das, Dash, Mohanty, Subudhi, Kar, Dhal, Nayak, Panigrahi, Pattnaik, Mishra, Sahoo, Sahu, Senapati, Prusty, Rath etc.
