In various languages the word "praveen" refers to specialization in a particular aspect. For example, in Telugu: "Sangeetham lo praveenudu" refers to a person skilled in music.
The name "Praveen'' was first used by royal heirs of the Ancient South-Indian Kingdoms who were born during the "Rudhrodhgaari" (57th year) of the 60-year cycle of the Tamil Calendar derived from ancient astronomical data, known as the "Tirukkanda Panchanga". (cf. The Secret Doctrine, 2:49-51)
