As per the Legend stated in Brahmanda Purana, Parasurama who exterminated Kshatriyas for 21 times performed a Yajna to get relieved from the Sins and donated all his lands to Brahmans as a Dakshina. He requested Lord Varuna (God of Rain) to throw a piece of Land from the Sea to retire and continue with his penance.

Lord Varuna gave him a Winnow (Surpa), which turned into a territory. Another version is that Varuna asked Parasurama to hurl the axe into the sea which turned into a territory. It was then known by Surparaka which came from the word Surpa (winnow). This is the present day Kerala as per the legends.
