I was reading a Wikipedia article today on the Mayurakshi River, which flows through West Bengal. Here's the clip from the article that I'm curious about:

Mayurakshi literally means the eye of a peacock (mayur/mor=peacock, akshi=eye).

That's cool, but it doesn't mention which language the translation comes from. Is it Bengali? I tried to use the Google detect-language option, but that told me it was English, so...fail language detection is fail. =P Does anyone here know?
