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 Srikanth, If I am not wrong, you made it from Sa-Manvi.
      Sa-Manvi is better as it is meaningful as a name, short and easy to pronounce.
      Samanvita समन्वित means possessed of in Sanskrit which is not a very strong meaning.

    Thank you for the reply Sapna . One last question ,
    Which of names is meaningful , Samanvi , Adhya , Anya or Aarna

    • Sapana

      Samanvi is a made-up name from Sa+Manvi
      Adhya: very beautiful names, Adhya is prime power, Goddess Lakshmi/Durga. But it is very common too.
      Anya: In Sanskrit means: अन्या inexhaustible but it sounds very much like अन्य which means Another person.
      Arna: अर्णा means river and also a goddess. Relatively uncommon but not rare too.

    • Sapana

      Best Matching girl child names are:
      Vrina: वृणा Chosen One
      Vrishina वृषिणा Peacock / Fond of Rain
      Virohina वीरोहिना Sprouting / Budding
      Sanitra सनित्रा Obliation / Gift
      Saranya सारन्या Speed / Run
      Sarjena सार्जेना Creative (Originally: Sarjana: Only Creation n Creating )

      Boys Names:
      Vrishan व्रिसान Riding on a bull Vrushabh Aan (Madeup) वृसान
      Sharyahan शार्यहन Warrior
      Shrenik श्रेनिक Organized (Front Tooth)
      Sriniy स्रिनीय Sruni : Goddess Durga Name (Moon) ॐ सृणये नमः।

            Hello ma’am

            Based on your feedback and some Google search we have shortlisted below names..

            In one of your comments I saw the name ‘Shrinay’ ..can u help me to know the origin and exact meaning of it..

            1) Miransh 2) Shrinay 3) Riyaan.

            You can add to the list if you have any.
            Thanks in advance.

          • Sapana

            Hi Vinayak,
            Miransh is the rarer and trendier name of all. The Nickname Mir itself is a very unique meaningful name. (Mir in Sanskrit: Ocean and Urdu: Leader)
            Riyaan is one of the very common names these days.
            Shrinay: I may not have suggested it as an original name as there is no exact word. But Shrinay can be related to Shrina which means night. Shrin is also derived from one of the Sahasranam of lord Vishnu: Shringee which means horned lord.

    Hi Sapna !!

    Can you suggest few Hindu names for baby girl starting with “bhoo” or “bhu”. (Actually if we write in hindi – the alphabet bh should be having badi uoo ki matra preferably).

    But you can suggest for both letters too.

    • Sapana

      Hi Divya,
      Bh-names are already very few, which are suitable for a new generation baby.
      According to my knowledge, भूमि is only such name. i.e. Badi-u Bhu and short meaningful name.

    Thank you for compiling such an extremely helpful list!

    Could you please also help list some trendy baby boy names associated with “Lord Shiv”?

    Personally, my own name means “I am” or “Pride” and so I’m also looking for girl names that have a deep meaning instead of just simple meanings like “beautiful”, “graceful”, etc.
