Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Vedehamuni:A name given to Ananda.(S.i.215,219; cf.Mhv.iii.36; Ap.i.7; DhSA.p.1).

The Commentary explains Vedeha by pandita.(Vedehamunino ti panditamunino.Pandito hi ñānasankhātena vedena īhati sabbakiccāni karoti,tasmā vedeho ti vuccati.Vedeho ca so muni cāti = Vedehamuni).

The Apadāna Commentary (ApA.i.106),however,gives another explanation,according to which Ananda was the son of a Videha lady (Videharatthe jātā,tassā deviyā putto).

SA.ii.132 ; cf.MT.149 (vedena paññāya īhati pavattatīti = vedeho).
