|Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera|
|Nāmasiddhi Jātaka：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 nothing．
The story was related in reference to a monk called Pāpaka who wished to change his name．The two are identical．J．i．401ff．
