malayalam monday

2009-03-30

Since no one answered last week’s question, and since I am extremely busy at work, this week is a repeat, but with the answers I came up with.

Quiz– how many names for “God” can you think of in Malayalam? 

Rules:

  • All religions allowed.
  • No extended euphemisms (e.g. “most high holy exalted revered one”).

My answers:

Daivam
Karthave
Yesuchristu
Yesumasiha
Swargeeya Pithave
Bhagavan
Allah

I am SURE there are more, but this is the extent of what I know.  Anyone else?
