To describe and interpret the linguistic situation in Northern India in the second and the early first millennium B.C. is a difficult undertaking. We cannot yet read and interpret the Indus script with any degree of certainty, and we do not even know the language(s) underlying these inscriptions. In this paper, attention is limited to the names found in the northern part of South Asia for which the evidence is earliest and most copious.
