Most of the poems of Avvaiyaar are very popular even this day and included in text books in Tamil Nadu schools for children and Avvaiyaar means respectable old lady. The honorific aar is suffixed to one s name to denote great respect like the Hindi ji . Avvai means old woman. This title Avvaiyaar had been given to six different scholarly women all poets who lived in Tamil Nadu during different periods -the first one having lived in the 1st and 2nd centuries of Christian Era. The 2nd Avvaiyaar lived in the 13th century, the third in the 16th century, and the fourth in the 17th and the fifth and sixth in the 18th century. This is the finding by several researchers.
