Aacharya Tirthapura Nanjundaiah Shrikantaiah (Kannada: ತೀರ್ಥಪುರ ನಂಜುಂಡಯ್ಯ ಶ್ರೀಕಂಠಯ್ಯ), also known as ThiNamShree, was a Kannada literary poet, scholar, and teacher.

Shrikantaiah was instrumental in preparing and publishing Kannada version of Constitution of India in 1952. He is also credited for suggesting the term Rashtrapathi, a Sanskrit equivalent for President of India. When there was a discussion on the equivalent term for the President of Indian republic, as a member of Indian constitution council, it was he who suggested Rashtrapathi, a word with a similar connotation to President. The term was accepted unanimously and is still the term in use.
