      I'm afraid that I am rather skeptical about this. LOTS of monks went on
      pilgrimages, study trips, and what naught. Also, if you were a monk,
      then
      you would have had a name in religion. That is simply how things worked.
      One of the things that I did do was look up several Jodo sect monks.
      They
      do not appear to have been known by the formal names of their temple,
      but there were examples of being known by oblique reference. Manabu
      does indeed mean study, but I do not understand why a monk would be
      known as 学麻呂 Manabumaro. Unless you are fairly early, -maro is an
      ending for a childhood name. Yet, you claim to be a wandering monk.
      Monasteries just didn't send their young acolytes out the door like
      that.
      Also, I suspect that you are way too old for such a name unless you are
      from a comparatively early period.
