Murthy Family History

Murthy Name Meaning
Indian (Karnataka): Hindu name from Sanskrit murti ‘manifestation’, ‘image’. As a personal name, this appears to have evolved from the final element of compound names such as Ramamurthy ‘manifestation of Rama’ and Krishnamurthy ‘manifestation of Krishna’. It is only a given name in India, but has come to be used as a surname among South Indians in the U.S.
