Saṅghavarman (康僧鎧, 3rd century) was supposedly an Indian. His Sanskrit name was translated into Chinese as Saṅgha armor, and he was given the surname Kang in Chinese, which may imply his ethnic origin from Kangju (康居) nomads in central Asia.
He is not to be confused with two other Saṅghavarmans.
The same Sanskrit name was translated into Chinese as Sengqie-bamo (僧伽跋摩) for one from India, who went to China in 433, and as Sengqie-poluo (僧伽婆羅) for the other from Funan, who lived from 460 to 524 and is also known as Saṅghapāla.
