Chapter 8: A Collection of Hindu Names

A Collection of Hindu Names

or individuals seeking to choose a Hindu name, we have humbly assembled here a list of names primarily from the South Indian Saivite tradition, favoring shorter names which would be most easily pronounced in the West. Other very good sources are 1) The Penguin Book of Hindu Names, by Maneka Gandhi, and 2) Pick a Pretty Indian Name for Your Baby, by Meenal Pandya and Rashmee Pandya-Bhanot. Each book contains thousands of names from many of Hinduism's rich traditions. There are also several wonderful websites (listed on p. 428) with extensive lists of Hindu names. As there is variety in traditions, there is variety in the pronunciation and spelling of names. For example, Siva in the North of India may become Sivan in the South. For this purpose, we have listed a number of alternatives when multiple spellings and pronunciations exist. Names marked with an (M) are masculine, and those marked with an (F) are feminine. Names marked (M-F) are suitable for both genders.
