Dr. Ambedkar’s followers and the Indian people started respectfully addressing him as “Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar“, since September 1927, because millions of Indians consider him the “greatest liberator”. The honorific Babasaheb (Marathi: “Respected Father“, “Venerable“), first applied to him in 1927 in Maharashtra, India, is now used throughout the world.

Ambedkar family was of Marathi background from the village of Ambadawe (in Mandangad taluka) in Ratnagiri district of modern-day Maharashtra, India. Ambadawe village is the origin of the Ambedkar family. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s ancestors lived in this village, and at that time their family name or surname was “Sakpal“.

Maloji Sakpal (Dr Ambedkar’s grand-father) was a soldier in the army of British India, and later his son Ramji Sakpal (Dr Ambedkar’s father) served as a Major-Subhedar in the army of British India. Ramji married Bhimabai. The couple had 14 children, the last of them was Bhimrao. Bhimrao was born on 14 April 1891 in the town and military cantonment of Mhow (now Dr. Ambedkar Nagar) in the Central Provinces (now in Madhya Pradesh).

Bhimrao was also known by his other name as Bhim, Bhima, Bhiva and later Babasaheb as wll as Dr. B. R. Ambedkar. Bhimrao’s surname was Sakpal but his father Ramji Sakpal registered his surname as “Ambadawekar” in the school, meaning it comes from their native village of Ambadawe. Bhimrao’s Devrukhe Brahmin teacher, Krishna Keshav Ambedkar, changed his surname from “Ambadawekar” to his own surname “Ambedkar” in the Pratap Singh High School’s records.

In 1909, Dr. Ambedkar married Ramabai Ambedkar. They had five children – Yashwant, Gangadhar, Ramesh, Indu (daughter) and Rajratna. Apart from Yashwant (1912–1977), the other four died in under their two years age. Yashwant alone survived as his descendant. His second wife Savita Ambedkar had no children. Yashwant married Meerabai. They have four children – Prakash, Rama (daughter), Bhimrao and Anandraj. Rama married Anand Teltumbde, a scholar, social activist and professor.
