Indian Baby Names for Girls

Guest Author - Nancy Man

Goddesses and Queens


Names containing the element "dev" refer to the divine. For instance, there are the names Devi (goddess), Devika (little goddess), and Divya (divine, heavenly).

Queenly names include Rajni and Rani, while Rajkumari means princess.


Very; Good


I'm sure you've heard of Greek names like Eugene and Eustace, in which the "Eu-" element means good or well. There's a similar group of Indian names--they start with "Su-", which means good or very. Some of these names are Sudarshana (good-looking), Sumati (good thought), Sunita (good conduct), Sunitha (good guidance), Suniti (good conduct), and Sushila (good-tempered).


Moonlit Monikers & Lotus Love


Names that refer specifically to the moon include Chandra, Indu, and Shashi. Some other night-related names are Jyotsna (moonlight), Nisha (night), Sandhya (twilight), Swapna (dream, sleep), and Tara (star).

The lotus -- the national flower of India -- is referred to in a number of names, such as Padma, Padmavati, and Padmini.


Others


Here are a dozen more Sanskrit-based names and meanings: Aishwarya (power, wealth), Anjali (offering), Durga (unattainable), Kalpana (imagining, fantasy), Karishma (miracle), Lila (play, amusement), Mala (necklace), Malati (jasmine), Priya (beloved), Sarika (parrot, myna bird), Uma (flax), and Vidya (knowledge, learning).
