Reason for naming as Mandore Express:
Source: Etymology of train names
2461/ 2462 Delhi – Jodhpur (NWR Jodhpur division)
Mandore is a town located 9 km north of Jodhpur city. It was the seat of the Mandorva branch of the Parihar (Pratihara) dynasty which ruled the region in the 6th century AD. In 1395 AD, a princess of the Parihar rulers of Mandore married Chundaji,
scion of the Rathore clan of Rajputs, and Chundaji received Mandore in dowry. The town remained the seat of the Rathore clan until 1459 AD, when Rao Jodha, a Rathore chief who united the surrounding region under his rule, shifted his capital to the newly founded city of Jodhpur.
