NO. IT IS NOT. ACCORDING TO ORIGINAL SRIMAD BHAGAVATHAM, COMPOSED BY THE GREAT SAGE VEDA VYASA, THERE IS NO CHARACTER CALLED AS “RADHA” AT ALL.
THE MENTION OF RADHA IS AVAILABLE IN RAJASA PURANA LIKE ‘BRAHMA VAIVARTHA PURANAM’.

WE CAN TAKE ‘RADHA’ AS A SYMBOL OF DEVOTEE WITH SELFLESS DEVOTION. IN SANSKRIT “RADH” MEANS TO PLEASE. THE DEVOTION OF ONE, WHO PLEASED LORD WITH HIS HEART, DEED AND WORD, WILL BE CALLED AS RADHA. BECAUSE THE WORD ‘DEVOTION’ IS IN FEMININE GENDER, SO THE WORD ‘RADHA’ ALSO BECAME A FEMININE GENDER WORD. WHEN A
CHARACTER IS PERSONIFIED THAT CHARACTER BECAME ‘LADY RADHA’.

HOW LORD LOVES SUCH A DEVOTEE AND HOW SUCH DEVOTEE IS MERGED IN LORD, IS SEEN IN RADHA-KRISHNAS. HENCE RADHA IS NOT REALLY A PERSON, IT APPEARS. THAT IS THE REASON WHY KALYANAM IS NOT PERFORMED TO THEM. IT IS DONE TO THOSE WHO WERE REALLY THERE DURING HIS PERIOD.
