Will is character in action.William Mcdougall
- Probably from the name of legendary Indo-Iranian warrior named Kamboja, (placed at 12th generation from Swayambhuva Manu) of Indian tradtions. This Kamboja had won the prized Khadaga (Divine Sword) from Kuvalashava, the celebrated king of Kosala ( MBH 12/166/77). It is probable that Kamboja of Shantiparva (Mahabharata) was some very earlier Kambujiya or Kamboujiya of Persian traditions. See also: See: Wikipedia article on Etymology of Kamboja
