A Name is for a Lifetime

We at GoMama247 understand what a name should be for a new generation baby in India.
What qualities should an apt baby name in India have?

1) Positively Meaningful

Very first must-quality a baby name should have is a positive meaning as when you call your baby every time you mean that to the baby, you bless your baby with that meaning.

2) Easy to Pronounce

No matter from which religious background a new generation Indian baby is, a name should be easy to pronounce. Since a new generation baby will roam around the world, an easy to call name is highly recommended.

3) Short

Short names are usually sweeter and more stylish than long names. Long names too have their own charm, but short baby names are trendier hence we have listed carefully be it Sanskrit Sahasranam or ancient Arabic Quranic names.

4) Origin Verified

It may not be a mandatory feature of any baby name but your baby will carry a name for a lifetime. Don’t you want to know what the roots of that name are?

5) Uncommon

You don’t want people to call your baby by surname or a full name, the reason to highlight this is, that many Indian parents follow celebrity names or popular names and such handful of names are super common. There is nothing to wrong to have a common name, but, after all, an uncommon name is surely nicer to have.

Let us tell you confidently, no other website/app on the internet today has gone through such filtering as we at GoMama247 have. We value new parents’ time. You don’t have to look at any other sources to find an apt name for your baby.

We, experts of Sanskrit and Urdu, manually verify all of the names on this list with authentic sources like dictionaries.
(Please check the disclaimer about inspired/modified names).

Hence we don’t have tens of thousands of names to bewilder you, instead, we have only selective 10K Sanskrit names for Hindu babies and 5K Arabic names for Muslim babies.

The names marked with * are most recommended names as they are verified, genuine original names from respective languages. They are also short, rare and powerfully meaningful.

Not only this, we are here to help you with all your queries. Only the experts (Sanskrit name experts and Urdu name experts) will answer your query and that too for no fee. Let us help you in one of the most beautiful phases of parenting: Name finding!

    Hi,

    Me and my wife have short-listed Abhir, Anved and Aveer. Had one query for each of these

    Abhir – In Sanskrit, does it mean anything else apart from ‘Cow-herd’?

    Aveer – What is the Sanskrit meaning of this name. It is A-Veer (Not Brave)?

    Anved – What does it mean in Sanskrit?

    Hoping to see a reply from your end. Thanks for reading this.

    • Sapana

      Abir and Abhir are 2 different words
      Abir is related to fragrant holi colors, though it’s mentioned in Hindu songs its probably originated from Persian word Abir meaning fragrant which is a female name.

      Abhir is a shortened form of Abhiru meaning fearless.

      Avir has multiple meanings and none of them are positive. Yes it does mean not-brave, weak etc in Sanskrit. Hence not a recommended name.

      Anved is not an original word. And I cant even make out meaning of Anv + Ved.

    Hello Sapana,

    This site has a huge list of unique baby names with their meanings. We have selected a few of them for our baby boy.
    We liked the name ‘Panay/Panaay’ from your one of the popular name lists but unable to find its origin. Will you please help us more about this name?

    Could you please also help us with a few more baby boy names containing Sheetal and Bhushan?

    Regards,
    Bhushan

    • Sapana

      पणाय comes from the Sanskrit verb: पणायते i.e. to Praise/Honor
      same is the meaning of the word पनय Admire/Praise etc.
      Brihat बृहत
      Bhrit भ्रीत
      Shubhvan शुभ्वान
      Shulin शुलीन्

        I replied already on your previous query on another page. Anyways, sharing here also:

        Tatva: तत्व inspired by Tatwa gaya namah and Tatwa dnyaya namah meaning Truth
        Trayit त्रयीत: Trayi mayaya namah meaning 3 vedas taken together

      I have considered Vibhu as letters from Bibhu didn’t yield any common names.
