Aman Sharma says about the surname Dhar I am from district kishtwar of jammu and kashmir.As far as hindu population of kishtwar is concerned it consists considerably of kashmiri pandit lineages and most of the brahmins of kishtwar can be found with their ancestry either from maternal side or paternal side.In that sense brahmins of kishtwar are admixture of kashmiri pandit lineages.Most of the brahmins in proper kishtwar trace their ancestry from raniwari, srinagar and some of the families still do their mundan{tonsure}ceremony of male child in kheer bhawani tumul.However, most of the brahmin population with the rajputs and other castes go to the sarthal devi {Ashtadashbhuja Mata},also considered as Sharika mata in her exiled form, for the abovesaid ceremony. If anyone have any knowledge regarding the gotra "nabhkosh", do tell me.

Masood Magrey says about the surname Kaul Junaid no difference the name can be written as Koul or Kaul. The word is from Sanskrit. My family name is Magrey. It origins are from Sanskrit Magasa (warrier). An indigeneous Kashmiri warrior tribe. Earlier people wrote Magasa like Ladda Magasa later it became Magrey.

Ahmad Bhat says about the surname Raina While I agree that most Sikhs in the Valley are of non-Kashmiri (Jammu and Piunjab) yet a few Kashmiris may have converted to this great religion. Few Sikhs carry the name Rainas but have through time mixed with other Sikhs. As such they have little Kashmiri looks and do not speak Kashmiri either as their mother tomngue. The Bhats (Butts) are surely of Kashmiri Pandit origin and are pure Kashmiris. In fact Kashmiri Butts are all over in Pakistan particularly in Lahore and Gujranwala. They have proven to be great wrestlers. The great Gama was a Butt. In fact even now mostly Butts are fielded by Pakistan in wrestling, weightlifting, etc. The genuine Kashmiri ethnic stock is pure Aryan and Central Asian.
