The Music Academy took the name Sangita Vidwat Sabhai from an earlier incarnation of the Parthasarathy Swami Sabha. The term Tamil Isai Sangam was coined by Rajaji. Vani Mahal got its name because one of the founders owned Vani Pharmacy in T Nagar. The Rasika Ranjani Sabha did not like a namesake coming up in Calcutta and threatened a lawsuit. The Calcutta organisation changed its name to Rasika Ranjana Sabha.
