        Hi Sapana,

        We are looking for meaning of Shaarvi, we have short listed this name for our little angel…
        We want a name with meaning Durga, and starting with S

        • Sapana

          Sharvi: There is no direct meaning of Sharvi. Either you relate it to Sarv(Universe) or Sharvar(God of love, night, spotted).

    Why selecting a meaningful name is important for parents? Is it necessary to know the meaning? a few months back i have listed down many names that I like the most but I am unable for select the best.
    Sanvi, Sachita, Saavi, Shreyasa, Sambhavi are a few names.

    • Sapana

      Hi Reena,
      The meaning is important because a positively meaningful name inspires the child life long also a name is the first impression of the person.
      It is totally up to parents.
      all of the names you have selected are positively meaningful.
      Most of Hindu names are anyways meaningful.
