    Can you elaborate the meaning of Jeevansh, Meaning- Jeev ka Ansh? I am really confuse. Also, let me know how to hire a baby name consultant?

    • Sapana

      Yes you are right Nidhi. Jeevansh is Jeev ka Ansh. i.e. Part of life. Its life in itself. like Shivansh i.e. Shiv ka ansh. It means Shiv only.
