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).
