Oh learned ones!
While discussing on "Gotras" would someone help me understand why a woman's gotra is told to be changed to her husband's gotra (and surname) after marriage? It is side-tracking the actual topic but I'm in anveshana and would really appreciate anyone's kind thoughts. This is not a feministic perspective...I'm just a curious learner.

Thanks. But where did u get this information on Paurakutsa? any
particular person from the Paurakutsa gotra ? Please let this writer know
so that he can establish contact.
The order may be different I think and it also matters. Please
clarify.The order seems to be, repeat seems, I am not sure, "Angiras,
paurakutsa, trasdasya"

Meanwhile, to the best of this writer's knowledge, each gotra Pravara and
Gotra name are unique.

Also it is not necessary that the 5 or 3 pravaras to include the Root
Rishi who is supposed to form the genesis of the Gotra. For instance,

Shreevatsa : Bhargava, chawyvana, apnavana, owrva, jamadangni

Shadmarshana : Angirasa, pourkutsa, trasatsya

OM tat Sat
tat tvam asi

I belong to the Pourakutsa gotra (from TamilNadu). The rishis name that we use
match with the list given by Jaldhar (although not in the same order. It goes as
angirasa, trasadasyu and pourakutsa. Is that important ?).

Regd, two different gotras having different set of rishis, Does this mean
shaTamarshana and pourakutsa are just two names for the same gotra ?

 The set of 3 (or 5 or sometimes even 7) rishis for a gotra
