It seems Rajamouli's parents used to visit any one of the Jyothirlingalu for every Sivarathri. One day, when Rajamouli's mother was in Srisailam for Sivarathri, in her dream, she saw a Swamiji, who kept a baby boy in her lap. When she returned back from Srisailam, she gave birth to Rajamouli. Then she named her baby boy as Srisaila Sri Rajamouli – his full name. So Srisaila Sri Rajamouli is his name and SS is not his surname.
