There is really a confusion in someone's family about the Gotras.

Are there any Gotras with the names: Kandilya Gotra (starting with 'K) and Latvas Gotra?

If they are malapropism of some similar sounding Gotras then please suggest the correct ones.

NOTE: Malapropism: the mistaken use of a word in place of a similar-sounding one.

  • @Belucat Gotra system is not related to Hinduism? Then what it is related to? Do you know the contemporary meaning of Gotra (lineage) is mentioned in Chandrodaya Upanishad!?!

  • It would be better if you can cite the source where you read the names of gotras beginning with 'k and L'. Could you please cite those articles, where you read them! @A.J.
