Even the word "Dameda", or "Damila" (Dravidian) probably signified a geographic location (southern), i.e., south of the Vindyah mountains, as viewed by the northern Sanskrit writers.
The Tamil or Sinhala ethnic identity probably did not evolve until the early sangam period (this view seems to be held by I. The existence of place-names like Nagarjuna konda (i,e., kanda, කන්ද, hill) in South India, and Sinhala-prakrit artifacts imply that there was considerable cultural exchange across the Palk straits (Seth-Samudra yaaya මූදු යාව see discussion under Palk Strait).
Nevertheless, the Palk straits shielded the Island sufficiently to create unique biological species, a unique "Sinhala language" (see James W.
It should be noted that race or ethnicity , as understood today was of little consequence in ancient times, when it was the caste that was most important. Velu Pillai in Yalpana Vaibhava Kaumudi devotes a whole chapter to Sinhala place names in Jaffna.
Pamban-India bridge The place name Adampan may have been inspired by "Adam's bridge" (Irama cetu, or Rama cetu, Hindu name of the ridge of rocks crossing the Palk's Straits (Gajaba mooduyaava, මූදු යාව see discussion under Palk ...) and connecting Dhanuskodi (India) to Talaimannar (Lanka).
However, the name Adampan is found in several places which are far away from "Adam's bridge", e.g., in the North Vanni, and in the Trincomalee district (near Gomarankadavala), and hence it cannot be positively connected with Adam's bridge.
The origins of the Sinhala language are probably linked to the Magadhi of the Asokan (northern) Parkrit ( early Brahmi script), and Pali, while Tamil is linked to a southern prakrit (with a very similar Brahmi script).
However, the two forms of Brahmi, and their Prakrit forms are themselves very close.
The Brahma was believed to have created "castes" and not ethnicities. Buddhism flourished in South India during the time of Buddhagosha (author of Visuddhi-magga); and Lanka too had Buddhist Tamils as a small but important minority, with many of them resident in Anuradhapura. Here we focus on the old Sinhala names of the tamilized Place names in the North and East.
