Narasimha Rao is the individual’s name. In the name Teresa Monica Suman Wati Singh, Teresa is a Catholic baptismal name, Monica is a Catholic confirmation name, Suman is a Hindu birth name, Wati denotes gender indicating that this person is a female, Singh is a Kshatriya caste group as well as a Sikh clan name following a patrilineal heritage.
