On Carribean Names

Caribbean countries like Trinidad and Tobago have significant Indian migrant population.

And Jaggarnauth is an Indian name spelt with English-like phonetics which would be common in West Indies. Like "Chanderpaul" for Chandarpal. Similarly, in Pondicherry, some old residents have their names spelt with French-like phonetics.
