Unlikely. There is nothing to connect Yashovarman, the most important king of this dynasty to connect him with Youdheyas (Johiya Rajputs, who still are found in Western Rajasthan).Indrayudha, Chakrayudha, and Mahendrayudha.

Skandha was called by some tribes as Khanda. Not Bhrigu's fault. It is there on the coins. He does know the Sanskrit spelling.Actually correct spelling ( and the pronunciation ) of the other name of Kartikeya is SKANDA and not Khanda as you posted.
But the South Indians had their own God, Murugan, who was later merged with Kartikeya.But yes, it makes sense that Kartikeya worship in Tamilnadu may have come from North.
