One story tells about the origin of mlecchas from mouth of Nandini cow.

And from the froth of her mouth came out hosts of Paundras and Kiratas, Yavanas and Sinhalas, and the barbarous tribes of Khasas and Chivukas and Pulindas and Chinas and Hunas with Keralas, and numerous other Mlecchas.


Another story is about their origin from churned body of King Vena. Matsya Purana 10:7
