  • Koothrappali is a place in the district Kottayam of state Kerala of india. It is quite common for people from Kerala( I'm also from there so I know) to add the name of your home town to your name. Especially if you are famous.

    But it's kind of not proper because Raj is portrayed as a north Indian guy.. (Hindi speaking) whereas we from south don't speak Hindi.

    Ooh and in our language (malayam ., of kerala.) Koothra means a culturless/ shameless/ stupid person / thing.. You know what I mean. . We call people Koothra like you say ' you jerk' or ' you dumbass '.

    But I think it's the place name they mean.

  • Koothrappali is something which is hard to define.
    Although this is a fictional name, names like these are quite common for towns and villages of South-India. The most common one what we can find is Tiruchinapalli. And in South-India many families do have the names of towns and villages as their surnames (family-names or last-names) like Sarvepalli Radhakrishna the Second President of the Independent India.

    So technically, the characterization of Dr.Rajesh.K from The Big Bang Theory isn't proper since he's shown as a Hindi guy. Technically he's supposed to be coming from South-India where Hindi is scarce and the region is dominated by languages like Telugu, Tamil or Kannada. And the fascination for Bollywood among South-Indians is relatively less.

    But what I find is that the first part of the word *Koothra* is something I heard in North-Indian shows and movies. *Koothra* as I understand is a regional dialect form of the word *Kuttaa* which means *Dog* in Hindi.
