How did delhi get its name?

There are a number of legends associated with the origin of the name Delhi . One is that it is derived from Dhillu or Dilu , a king of Mauryan dynasty who built a city at this location in 50 BC and named it after himself. [6] [13] [14] Another legend holds that the name of the city is based on the Hindi/Prakrit word dhili ( loose ) and that it was used by the Tomaras to refer to the city because the Iron Pillar of Delhi had a weak foundation and had to be moved. [14] The coins in circulation in the region under the Tomaras were called dehliwal . [15] According to the Bhavishya Purana, King Prithviraj Chauhan , of Indraprastha built a new fort in the modern-day Purana Qila area for the convenience of all four castes in his kingdom. He ordered the construction of a gateway to the fort and later named the fort dehali . [16] Some historians believe that the name is derived from Dilli , a corruption of dehleez or dehali -both terms meaning 'threshold' or 'gateway'- and symbolic of the city as a gateway to the Gangetic Plain. [17] [18] Another theory suggests that the city's original name was Dhillika. [19] SOurce Wikipedia
