Cilapulapu

Did you know?

The recorded name of Lapulapu is actually Cilapulapu, the prefix being Si, from the Sanskrit Sri or a title for a nobleman.

The “Çi” in the recorded name Lapulapu is most likely the ancient honorific title, ‘Si,’ which was an indigenized form of the Hindu title ‘Sri’ (‘gentleman’ in Sanskrit) to refer to a nobleman.” (Other variations of ‘Sri’ are sari, seri, and sali.)
