But not always. names can be deceptive too. Example, Bindu can be the name of Hindu as well as Christain girls. Binu can be the name of both males an females of hindu and Christian . Similar is the case with the name Sunil. I think, you have in mind names like Jacob, Krishnan,Raman, Mathew, Parvathi, John,Sumita,Jayan , etc etc

Name of village, father's name then the real name; this order is followed there which is in olden times could serve as a complete postal address; but not indicative of religion.

Barring certain exceptions, mostly names are truly deceptive that mislead you quite often...!
