There have been many questions about the origin of the name Scandinavia, and how these peoples became white skinned. It is thought that Bharath (original name of those who lived in India) once extended to here, and the peoples here were the ancestors of those now living in India, a land called Bharath in their own words. Scandinavia comes from the name of the Indian God Skanda. Skanda (who has many other names – Murugan, Karthik, Subramaniam – and is honoured and worshipped extensively in the south of India) was in fact an historical person, who walked the Earth and gave the teachings of the Source of All Creation.
