Babi was also the name of the only ruling dynasty (title Nawab) in the salute state of Radhanpur, where for generations Bahadur Babi followed the ruler's personal name
The same dynasty finally ruled Junagadh, but there Babi was rarely part of the name, and never of the title of the ruling Nawab Saheb
