Hebbar Iyengar is attributed to a Group of Karnataka SriVaishnavites.
It is generally accepted that SriVaishnavism in Karnataka (Mysore State) came into being when the Great SriVaishnava Acharya Sri RamanujaAcharya settled in Thirunarayanapuram (Melkote) -Pandavapura, Mandya District for more than 20 Years.
Many of his disciples had also followed him to Melkote. The Local Brahmins of the area had converted to SriVaishnavism during that time. Sri RamanujaAcharya affectionately called them "hebbu haaruva" meaning Elderly Brahmins.
It is explained In Wikipedia as:
The etymology of Hebbar, in Kannada, resolves to "hebbu/hiridhu" (elderly) + "haaruva" (brahmin). This is generally accepted.
We celebrate Vaishnava Sampradaya as propounded by our Great Acharya Sri Ramanuja Charya.
Our Unique bhāshe - Hebbar bhāshe; a blend of archaic brahmin tamil with generous Kannada language. There are many variations in this too.
