Short Sweet Meaningful Hindu Baby Boy Names

Unique Short Beautiful Names for Baby Boys

When I was looking for names for both my sons, I always thought of cute boy names which are short, sweet and stylish. I went through thousands of one or two syllable Hindi/Sanskrit names because I didn’t want them to have any funny or embarrassing pet names. I believe that those who don’t have a pet name and are called or known only by one name i.e. their real name, relate more deeply to their name which brings in a sense of greater belongingness.
Here are some cool boy names which are short and snappy yet profoundly meaningful (mainly originating from Sanskrit).

    I was looking for short names which are meaningful too for my baby boy. Lovely collection you have here girl. Simply amazing. Most importantly they all have nice meanings and are pretty uncommon. I didnt find such collection else where. Thanks. Will read it again to finalise my shortlist.

  5. Avatar

    I must appreciate your short name collection. My whole family worships Lord Visnu and I found a cool but relevant name here ‘Eha’. Don’t know why but it sounds feminine to me. Can you suggest a masculine name for my baby boy that means Lord Vishnu and which is short at the same time?

  6. Avatar

    Good Work. They really are Sweet names.
    I love name Raghu but its too common.
    I am thinking of naming
    Shanyu: Kind hearted, Kind
    OR
    Sharu: Lord Vishnu
    Can you please tell me if they are common in India?

    Hey Sapana,
    These names are really sweet and the list is helpful. I am confused between Gia, Sneh and srini. Can you help which is the best?

    Hi there, my bestfriend has given birth to a boy and now she is searching a name for her baby boy. I first thought of ‘Yuvraj’ but now, I think I will suggest her ‘Yuv’. Since nobody will be able to nickname him. Thanks to you. 😀

    I like the name …. Ansh, Can you suggest a few more short names ending with -sh….. also please tell if its Annsh or Ansh? or Aansh? So many spellings, it confuses….
    Thanks

    • Sapana

      Correct spelling is Ansh But as its a non-English native name, you can select spelling of your choice. Aa is used for short names to make it look Trendy.
      Names ending with sh are mostly longer names, short names are mentioned above.

    I have a baby girl. Can you suggest some cute nicknames for her? I don’t like pihu, sweety, mitthi. These are very old names and almost every girl has similar names. I want something unique and cute.

    I am confused between the listed names. Actually I am searching for a simple, sweet and meaningful name for my baby boy. Please help me in finding the unique nickname for my baby.
    Venu: Flute
    Vian: Full of life & energy, Alive / lively
    Vaasu: Wealth
    Vaayu: Breeze
    Vyan: Air circulating in the body / Life Giving
    Vyush: Daybreak
    Yog: Lord Buddha
    Yuj: To concentrate
    Yuv: Vigorous

    • Sapana

      They all are sweet and meaningful names but comparing some other important points like ease of pronunciations and common/rare
      Yuj
      Vyan
      Vyush (not easy to pronounce but its rare)
      are better choices

    All the names are really good. Can you suggest some rare and meaningful baby names with the starting letter “E”? I have searched a lot but couldn’t find any good name.

  15. Avatar

    This list of nicknames is really amazing. But I am searching a cute nickname staring with “I” which matches with the latest trend. Also let me know whether nickname also affects the personality?

    • Sapana

      Hi Aruna,
      Here are some more cute nicknames: Nicknames for babies
      If the nickname is very funny or weird, and your child’s friends may make fun of the name then definitely it affects him/her right?
      You wont be able to control that later in future. So select a cute and nice nickname.

    Sidhh is my all time favorite name, but now I feel its difficult to pronounce for non-Indians. What do you think?
    Thanks in advance

    • Sapana

      Its not really very difficult to pronounce but its very Indian (Because of Dh at end) hence you feel it is difficult for foreigners.

      Hi Hari,
      Originally the word is only Dwij which means twice-born, Brahman or Aryan.
      Dwijdev is Sage/Saint
      I am not sure but as we worship SaiBaba as a saint so in that relation, may be referred as Dwijith.

    Hi sapana can u plzz suggest me a name for my little baby boy… I need 2 word names with starting letter V or by combining my husband name is Lalith n my name is Yamuna

    • Sapana

      Hi Yamuna,
      I can suggest 2nd name after you finalise the first name. As 2nd name must match it with meaning and sound and its difficult to suggest multiple 2nd name to each name in a long name list.
      Also, your names dont include V, so its another difficult task to suggest some name matching with both.
      Here are some suggestions though:

      Vadanya वदन्य
      Varenya वरेन्य
