Meyappan Meyappan son of Meyappan Meyappan

This funny post started it all about the south indian naming and the difficulties faced by south indian single men. After reading it and laughing aloud, I am reminded of an incident in college.

There was a class mate whose family tradition was to name the first born son as Meyappan. Unfortunately this guy was the first born son of a first born son of a first born son. So when he applied for a passport, the officials thought he was joking. He had to get innumerous government documents including his grandfather's birth certificate to prove that indeed he was Meyappan Meyappan son of Meyappan Meyappan.
