We like the boy name Kian but it has many variations like Khyan Kiaan Kiyaan.We are hindus and we would prefer a name which has Sanskrit meaning as well.which of the above variation is a hindu name.also based on actual date of birth and numerology which would be a better option. would like to know pronunciations as well thank u. If girl Kiara is an option is it a hindu name and what is the meaning

        Hi Vidya,
        As explained in the post above, the name Kian (pronunciation Keeyaan) is a multi-origin name.
        But the spelling n pronunciations are a little different.
        1. Talking about Arabic: Its Kian or Keyan which means Essence/ Existence
        2. In Persian, it is Kian or Kayaan: means powerful king or prince
        3. In case of Sanskrit its originally: ख्यान to simplify its written n pronounced as Kyan.
        Khyan in Sanskrit means Perception and knowledge. If you want it an unmodified and perfect Sanskrit name then it should be Khyan.
        But to relate it to other many beautiful origins, keep it simple and Sanskrit rooted too Kyan is a choice.
        In case of girl name Kiara is not a Sanskrit word as far as know.
        Closest Sanskrit names are:
        Kara: करा Moonbeam / Lord Shiva is the Doer of All Actions ॐ कराय नमः।
        Keyura केयुरा Armlet
        Kirina (Kirin कीरिन् in Sanskrit means Praising, one who prises)

      Hi Janani,
      From 1008 names of Lord Murugan, only a few names starting from Du sound suitable for the new generation, but their meanings are not very positive.
      e.g. Durvigah: But it means dangerous
