The Telugu language: The Italian of the East

Telugu is such a melodious language that it is also known as "Italian of the East". It is also called Andhra, and in the past it was called "Tenugu". Telugu is a Dravidian language, and it gained prominence in the era of the Chalukyas of Vengi, between the 7th and 12th centuries. Telugu script (తెలుగు లిపి; Telugu lipī) originated from the Brahmic family of scripts.

Telugu vocabulary is influenced by Sanskrit; with the advent of the Mughals in India, several Persian and Arabic words also entered into this Indian language's lexicon. The evolution of Telugu can be traced in terms of forms and functions. Culturally it is closer to its southern neighbors, but it shows similarities in origin to northern languages such as Manda and Gondi.

When it comes to history, Telugu is an older language than ancient Western languages such as Ancient Greek or Latin. In structure, it has a composition based on pattern, prose, sound, rhyme and rhythm. It also has numerous idioms and proverbs called Saamethalu.

Telugu Names For Male Pets

If you know your pet is going to be male, we recommend any of the following Telugu names for male pets:

Try Aabhas (ఆభాస) if your pet is a sensitive one, for it means “sense” or “feelings”. Aabhat (ఆభాత) is another good name that means “shining” or “visible.” If you have a loyal and obedient pet, consider naming him Aadarsh (ఆదర్శ). Aadesh (ఆదేశ ) is a nice Telugu name for a male pet; it means “command” or "message".

Perhaps you have a Persian cat or a rare parakeet who looks and acts royal: Try naming him Aadhish (ఆధీశ ), which means “king.” Another great Telugu name is Aadhyatm (అధ్యాత్మ) which means “focus” or “concentration.” If your pet comes first for you, he should be named Aadi (ఆది) which means most important.

Ceyone (కేయోన) or “rising sun” is a wonderful name for your alert male parrot. If your male pet is a wish come true, name him Chaand (చాంద) which means “sincere wish.” For the super duper pet, consider the name Chahan (చాహన), Telugu for “super". If your pet is the cheerful friendly type, go for Chahel (చాహేల) which means “good cheer.” For your peaceful pet horse or dog, the perfect name is Chain (చైన) which means “peace.”

Got a wise old turtle? Name him Chaitanya (చైతన్య) which means “knowledge” or “sage”. If your pet canary is fond of looking at the moon, the perfect bird name is Chakor (చకోర), which means exactly that! For those looking for unique names for tomcats, consider the name Chakshan (చక్శన) which means “good looking.” For your pet hawk or kite, the best name is Chakshu (చక్షు), which means eye.

If your pet is a timely gift, consider naming him Kaal (కాల) which means “time”. A great name is Kaalik (కాలిక) or long-lived. If your pet has a wild, fun side to him, the right Telugu name is Kaamat (కామత), standing for “unrestrained”. For an especially desired pet, consider the name Kaamik (కామిక) standing for “desired.” If your pet is your dream come true, Kaamod (కామోద) or “one who grants wishes” is the Telugu name for pets to choose.
