Re: maize in ancient india: strong transpacific links are indicated

And one last speculative linguistic hypothesis

Since these temples in India are in the district MYSORE
and since the Latvian  MAIZE/MIZA "hulled plant, grain, bread"
can also be written as MAIZELE
is it in fact possible that MYSORE takes its name from MAIZELE i.e. MAIZE?
Probably too obvious to be "possible" for the linguists?
But again - I just throw these out for thought.
I am still undecided on this issue...
