Parmar are one of the four Agnivanshi Clans of the Rajputs. They are said to have been born out of a Sacrificial Fire-pit.

The name Parmar means ‘one that strikes the enemy’, from Sanskrit para meaning ‘enemy’ + mara meaning ‘strike’. There are numerous variants of the name, including Pramar, Pavar, Powar, Pawar, Panwar, and Ponwar.[1]
