Nair is the name of a caste ((Hinduism) a hereditary social class among Hindus; stratified according to ritual purity in the Southern Indian (A member of the race of people living in North America when Europeans arrived). Nairs are a warrior class they are similar to the samurai of Japan.
The word Nair is either derived from the Sanskrit ((Hinduism) an ancient language of India (the language of the Vedas and of Hinduism); an official language of India although it is now used only for religious purposes). The meaning can be word Nayaka (leader) or Naga (snakes and in due course of time the word become Nair. The Nair class name also encompasses Menons, Panickers, Pillais Unithanz, Thambies, Nambiars etc. too.
The origin of the Nair caste is uncertain. Some anthropologists are of the view that the Nairs are not indigenous to Kerala, One theory is that Nairs are actually the descendants of the Newars of Nepal.
There exists another disputed view that the Nairs and Rajput (A dominant Hindu military caste in northern India) are related, moving south and thus becoming the Nairs .There is no real proof behind this claim, which may or may not be true.
Yet another theory is that the Nairs are indigenous to Kerala, but gained the sharper features and fairer complexion due to intermarriages with the Namboothiris (The namboothiris are the brahmins of kerala....)
In short we can clear these fact - the Nairs are a large matrilineal warrior caste of Kerala State in India. Traditional Nair families are headed by a woman, with whom lives her siblings, sisters' children and other matrilineal relatives. In Nair tradition, a man moves back to his mother's residence shortly after his wedding ceremony and children belong to their mother's lineage.
Now the exceptions are coming as social order is changed and families are becoming nuclear and the purpose of living with their children and wives make nair youths to take steps to find way to live out side the family arena and try to lead a life themselves than common big combined tharavadus.
