Nāmasiddhi Jātaka (No. 97)
Once the Bodhisatta was a famous teacher of Takkasilā, and
among his pupils was one named Pāpaka. He, wishing for a less ill omened name,
consulted his teacher. The Bodhisatta suggested that Pāpaka should travel and
find a suitable name. He came back a wiser man, for he discovered that "Jīvakas"
died and that "Dhanapālīs" grovelled in poverty the name signified
The story was related in reference to a monk called Pāpaka
who wished to change his name. The two are identical. J. i.401ff.
