Vasudeva and Vaasudeva[edit]

This article has become confused in its subject (and confused in other ways as well). Material on Vaasudeva should be in the Krishna article, or if it that article becomes too large, then it could reasonably be adde to an article titled Krishna Vaasudeva. This article should be on its original subject, that of the father of Krishna. Imc 15:58, 8 July 2006 (UTC) Clearly the more popular usage of the term is associate with Krishna being Vasudeva. A disambiguation page is required to avoid further confusion. Wikidās ॐ 10:11, 10 May 2008 (UTC)


Patronymic is a name derived form a name of the father. This word is used by Hastings in his encyclopedia to describe VAsudeva. This is english Wikipedia and its preferably to use English words to describe things.. Wikidās- 11:36, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
