Since when name suffix "inder" infiltrated Sikhi

Old Sikh names used to be like Ajaib, Jujhar, Zorawar, Sher, Jassa, Ranjit etc. Nowhere in Sikh history we find names like Balwinder, Parminder, Gurwinder, Maninder and numerous other combinations, before these so called Royal family members of Patiala started using it. If I'm correct it was Raja Bhupinder, Amarinder etc.

Gurbani clearly states:

sahaNsar daan day indar ro-aa-i-aa.
Branded with a thousand marks of disgrace, Indra (Inder) cried in shame.


paras raam rovai ghar aa-i-aa.
Paras Raam returned home crying.


ajai so rovai bheekhi-aa khaa-ay.
Ajai cried and wept, when he was made to eat the manure he had given, pretending it was charity.


aisee dargeh milai sajaa-ay.
Such is the punishment received in the Court of the Lord.


rovai raam nikaalaa bha-i-aa.
Rama wept when he was sent into exile,

Gurbani is clear on status of "Inder". Inder is definitely not a synonym for Lord in Sikhi as has been popularized by brahmans.

There was an old thread somewhere on internet discussing this same issue which I could not find. Any input from our beloved members will be appreciated. Thanks.

It's probably cultural.... Different cultures effects each other when they co-exists...
Jassa/Sher/Ranjit etc are not religious names bruh XD, they Came from the cultures of regions they belonged to.... Same is with other names...

Lol, sometimes I wonder why don't people say (" Sikhs never used to wear wristwatches back in 1800s why do they wear them now") stuff XD

Sorry, but your answer is illogical and driving the issue off the point.

Shocked to see most of these patiala "royals" have hinduised names and there is clear preference to "Inder"

I agree , its more to do with common culture shared of that particular region.

My original question still stands. Bunch of anti-Sikh posters trying to twist the issue here👎 "A_Seeker"s posting history clearly shows he's defending India and justifying Sikh Genocide 1984 as a Congress' plan even though RSS was also involved and Rajiv Ghandi was given bumper victory by hindustanis. See attachment for his hate post. Link: Martial Race-Truth or a sinister Fallacy?

Admin needs to be more vigilant of these agents.

When you pick & choose something out of context to target someone personally your bias & hatred becomes clear.

dude are you out of your senses ? lol what was that reply ?
Seeker's reply is soo true, He's just stating that Guru's also had Names according to the Cultures of the regions they were brought up in, Look at "HarKrishan" named by no other than the Seventh guru himself....
"Gobind Rai" Named by none other than Guru Teg bahadur himself
"Har Gobind" named by none other than Guru Arjan himself...
You cant even say that their parents were influenced by hindus and were lesser of a sikhs cus the people who named these were GURUS



Unless you're trying to put childish logic and spread Hateful content.........

and by the way, Rajputs hv been using "SINGH' wayyyyy earlier since 11th century or maybe even before that... Why did Guru Gobind Singh Used a HINDU Surname and Named all his children after it XD lol.... Your Question in this thread in Terribly invalid and you are using Gurbani by nit-picking the verses according to wherever they fit your ideology or suits your agenda....... ALWAYS QUESTION YOURSELF....
