Reason for naming as Mangala Lakshadweep Express:
Source: Etymology of train names
2617/ 2618 Ernakulam – Hazrat Nizamuddin (SR Thiruvananthapuram division)
Originally named Mangala Express, the train originated from Mangalore and ran via North Kerala – Coimbatore – Jolarpettai – Gudur – Vijayawada – Nagpur – Itarsi. Then it was diverted via the Konkan railway and Bhusaval, and so it was extended to Ernakulam to
maintain the connectivity of North Kerala with Delhi. It was also renamed as the Mangala Lakshadweep Express at the same time to give the Union Territory of Lakshadweep a claim to a train. The Goddess Mangaladevi gives the city of Mangalore its name. She is the main deity of the Mangaladevi Temple at Bolar in Mangalore. The name Mangalore is the Anglicized version, since in Kannada it is called Mangalooru. It translates as Mangala-Ooru or Mangala's town. Lakshadweep, the smallest union territory of India, is a group of islands 200 to 300 km off the coast of Kerala in the Laccadive Sea. Lakshadweep comes from Lakshadweepa, which literally means one hundred thousand (laksha) islands (dweepa) in Sanskrit.
