Meaning & History
This surname has multiple meanings, the most commonly accepted etymology is that Dwivedi means a person who has the knowledge of two Vedas, but there exists a conflicting view since Dwivedis are given higher status than Chaturvedis or Chaubeys.
In eastern part of Uttar Pradesh, sources refer that Dwivedi is derived from a combination of the words 'Daiv' and 'Vedi'; 'Daiv' means 'spiritual, related to God' and 'Vedi' means 'one who knows about'. Thus Dwivedi means 'a person who knows about God'.
This name is famously borne by an Indian girl Twinkle Dwivedi, who had a rare condition that made her cry tears of blood.
