Download Unique Indian Baby Names List


A name is for a lifetime; choose it wisely for your baby!
Having done extensive study of numerous Indian Hindu Baby Names from the treasure troves of Sanskrit dictionaries, Hindu Lord Sahasranam and such other authentic sources, I, Sapana Vibhandik , the owner of GoMama247, along with my team, have helped scores of parents find the most select names for their babies. I also revel in the art of creating novel names.
You can be assured of unique, trendy, and easy to pronounce boys names list and girls name list.

Previously a PREMIUM/PAID names list, now available to you Free of Cost. You can browse the list HERE: Baby Names A-Z List

After months of prolonged and comprehensive research and verification of Quranic Names, their origins, associated cultures, and traditions, our Urdu/Arabic language and name experts have finally come up with a handpicked list of 5000 Muslim baby names for girls and boys

Many lists of names available on the internet today, have unverified names which have incorrect MEANINGS and ORIGINS with many non-Indian names mentioned as Indian/Hindu names!
E.g. You would find the name Abeer meaning fragrance at many places. It does mean fragrance in Hebrew but in Sanskrit, it means Gulal/Colored Gulal (Reference: There are many names which have negative meanings in Sanskrit. e.g. Niravan means Moksh i.e. Death, instead, the positively meaningful name is Anirvan i.e. no-death/immortal.

Understanding our List

After exploring thousands of baby names based on origin, meaning, pronunciation and uniqueness, we have decided to split the list in TWO parts – Highly Recommended Names and the Other with either not so positive or strong origin or a bit Common Names. Our Highly Recommended Names are Marked with *.

All the names in our customized baby name list are lucid, voguish and semantically correct. We also provide numerous names starting with difficult letters viz. Dh and Bh. Nevertheless, names starting from most popular letters A, S, M, R, Y are also very carefully selected to be unique. In other words, it’s a treasure trove of handpicked lists of meticulously curated, immortal names!

    Pls recommend your favourites, do include names beginning with K

      Hi Vyshnavi,
      Please note, I don’t work on astrology.
      Baby names from combination of Balaji and Vyshnavi are very few mainly due to Balaji has relatively-rarely used letters in names.
      On top of that K-name is very difficult. Anyways I have tried my best.
