The etymology of the name according to some traditions is that a certain Rae was told by his astrologers that a boy would be born in a Rae family who would destroy his kingdom, so he ordered that all the children born to Rae families should be killed, but Maral's mother concealed him in a drum, and so he was named Maral ( from the Sindhi marhna to muffle).[1]
