    I have recently shifted to California. I am looking for cute Indian nicknames that are trendy and preferred in California. Like the nicknames which are accepted worldwide.

    • Sapana

      Siri translates to Shuttle as it is, if you talk about Sanskrit.
      So it wont be a meaningful Hindu name. But You can opt for name Suri, a Very meaningful name in Sanskrit.
      Or Shri which is another Hindu name.
      As a nickname, you dont have to think much about its meaning unless is negative.
