Andhra Brahmins Migrated from Tamil Nadu? Surnames

My view is that Brahmins, being an integral part of Sanathana Dharma, were present in the North and the South right from the earlier ages.

And Lord Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu migrated from the South to the North and his offspring established the Ikshvahu dynasty.

However evidence suggests that the Brahmins initially settled around the Cauvery River in Tamil Nadu, which was ruled by the Chola dynasty whose ancestors were the Surya Dynasty, and the Cholas belong to Kasyapa Gotra.

Please read my post on this.

Brahmins migrated , for unknown reasons to Andhra Pradesh, around 1400AD.
