Old Wiki
Name: Tharakan
Gender: Unknown Gender
Location: Travancore State(present India)
Language: Syrian
Thematic: Unknown Thematic
Meaning: 'Tharakan' literally means'broker'. As an honorific, its usage began in the late 18th century, and early 19th century, when several leading Syrian Christian merchant families were given this name in the old Travancore State (in present-day Kerala in India). These merchants primarily dealt in local products like spices, timber, coconuts, pepper, fish,etc., and traded mainly with Europeans, exchanging local goods for huge sums of money or European merchandise. Many of these 'Tharakans' became immensely rich in the process, owning huge areas of land, property, go-downs, etc. One particular 'Tharakan' family, the 'Parayil'clan near Alleppey, became extraordinarily wealthy, so much so that 'Parayil' came to be a synonym for wealth in Malayalam, the local language of Kerala.
