It represents the place of habitatation associated with first name. Milk in Kannada is called Haal and in Tamil/Telugu is Paal. Many places in Karnataka are named using Haal as Haali and in Telugu/Tamil as Paali or Palli. Have you heard about names as Kodigehalli, Byapanahalli, Naampalli, Boinapalli. Similar way, we have Rampur, Nagpur, Kanpur etc. mostly in nortern states of India.

Our names are often confounding not just to others but even to our own countrymen. Thanks to the many languages, dialects, and religions that abound in India, a variety of naming conventions have evolved in the country, resulting in names and naming styles that can be quite bewildering as well as fascinating.
