  3. Hello Sapna, Do your paid PDF baby names list contain all unheard names other than the website names? Or do you have same names in list as in your website?

    • Sapana

      Hi Mayur, Both lists i.e. Boys/Girls have 2 lists in the PDF file the first list mainly contains the unheard names which are nearly 700 (in both Boys/Girls files) and second list has mixed, i.e. some you might have seen before but the information given with the names is what you might not have seen.

      • Hi Sapana,
        Does your paid list provide all names with are not there on other websites. I have seen nearly 15 -20 websites and found 1000 names. Do you give guarantee that names will be unique in your list apart from other internet list ? Please guide.

        Also what do you provide in Rs 1200 consultation.


        • Sapana

          Hi Ankit,
          There are many names in the list which are no where on internet. Also the meanings which I have mentioned with each name is verified from Sanskrit Dictionaries, unlike other websites which have listed any names under Indian baby names category.
          Depending on the starting letters the number of suggestions are more or less. After all this is a friendly name suggestion help, I cant guarantee you anything.
          I do paid consultation where in you will have to purchase the list first and send me the shortlist so I understand your choices and accordingly I try to find new original names or try to make new meaningful names.

          • Okay I want names for baby boy having Punarvasu Nakshatra. So I want modern names with letter H or K.
            Also I dont want any old names. Please let me know if you can help here.


  4. The list of names is really good. But I am confused as there are so many names. Can you help me in figuring out the unique and cute baby boy names with starting letter “S”?

  5. My kid was born on 13 September 2017. I am looking for a cute and unique baby boy name for him. After checking your list I am a bit confused. Can you suggest some good trendy names for baby boy. Thanks in advance.

    • Sapana

      Hi Ritvi,
      Akil is an Arabic Name meaning: Smart/Clever/Intelligent (there is no meaning in Hindi/Sanskrit for Akil)
      Akhil is a Sanskrit Name Meaning: Whole/Complete.

    • Sapana

  7. Hi Sapna,

    Please help me in finding a good and unique name for my son. It should start with Du/dhu, Ja/jha, ta/tha


    • Sapana

      Hi Ravi,

      You may start with this list: Rarest Hindu Baby Names
      Please read all instructions before buying the list.
      NOTE: you have limited options of starting letters and these are not very easy starting letters, the number of suggestions are obviously less than other letters like A/S/M

    • Sapana

      Hi Seenu,
      Originally in Sanskrit it is pronounced as सात्विक i.e. Satvik.
      But in Southern India the T is written n pronounced as TH.
      So Satvik or Sathvik, both are correct. (repeating ‘a’ is unnecessary)

  8. Sapana! Beautiful collection of names. Thanks for giving few rare names which are not included in few of the websites where in we search for baby names. Loved most of the names…. Love you
    Please suggest some nick names for my son similar to the names of my hubby and daughter; Alu & Ailey

  9. Samyukta Panchal on

    Hi there, these are really nice unique boy names but i am looking for totally unheard yet meaningful name for my baby boy. I am not keen on rashi or numerology. But name must be very uncommon and also modern. Not very complicated like recent few sanskrit baby names. Looking forward to your suggestions

    • Sapana

      Hi Sanjog, Both are right. just the pronunciations are different. Mainly in southern part of India, t in names is pronounced/spelled as th.
      Its not very rare name.

  10. Hi, nice collection. liked it. please suggest me some indian baby boy names which has Sh or R in it. I find such names attractive, like Ishaan, Ayush, Aryan, Arav but I dont want such overly common names… There are at least 3 kids of these names in my family and relatives. I dont want meaningless names. Thanks.

  11. I loved the name Varya for my newborn baby boy but I think it is somewhat difficult to pronounce for foreigners. Can you suggest similar but easier and rare Indian baby boy name? Also does Varya, as it ends with an a, sound like a baby girl name? sorry I am not saying its not a good suggestion. In fact I loved it but its one time decision so would like to know your opinion.

  12. I want to name my baby boy something like prince or king but not usual hindu baby boy names like yuvraj or rayan etc. suggest me some nice names please.

  15. Manisha Vikhepatil on

    I liked the names kian but its not Indian and n I want a Hindu Origin name for my son. can you please tell any similar but equally cute n trendy boy name? Thanks

    • Sapana

      Kian is Persian for Prince. But Very close to Kian is a beautiful Sanskrit Name: Kyan and it means Knowledge.
      If you ask me, there is nothing wrong in Kian and you can relate it to Kyan for Sanskrit Origin, Pronunciations are 90% same.

    • Sapana

      Horay: Lord Ganesh (One of 1000 names of Lord Ganesh) (होरा means Hour/Time/Horoscope in Sanskrit) Horay means one who is lord of time! Amazing name. 1000 names of Hindu lords are awesome with very deep meaning.

  16. Hi Sapna, I heard about your baby name website from my friend. i am looking for a positive n simple sweet name for a newborn baby boy in my family.I want unique baby name which will suit a smart new generation boy. pls help.

  17. can u pls tell bit more about edhas? is it hindu baby name? Sanskrit or Hindi? more info will be appreciated. thanks.

    • Sapana

      Its not Parush or Paarush (In fact Parush has negative meaning in sanskrit) Its Paurush
      पौरुष in Sanskrit/Hindi
      Means: Manly/Power/Human/Heroism

  18. Hi sudhir,

    I’m looking for baby girl names.. indian hindu names.. can you pls suggest me some links or website where I need to look for unique names

    • Sapana

      Hi Sahitya,
      This is Sapana
      You may start with this List: http://www.gomama247.com/download-unique-indian-baby-names-list/
      I have created this list after a detailed study of Sanskrit Originated names.
      I have discovered many new unheard beautiful names which are mentioned in the list.
      The list contains 700+ names which are very unique (Many are unheard, not all though) and few more trendy names (1400+)
      I suggest you go through it first. If in case you still want me to help then I charge 1200Rs for consultation (Other than the list).

    • Sapana

      Arsh mentioned above is : आर्ष which means, veda, speech of rishi, holy text, sacred decent in Sanskrit.
      Word Arsh :अर्श means piles.
      The word and pronunciation are different.

    • Sapana

      अग्रिय means foremost/best basically its a male noun but as it ends with a (for easier pronunciation) it suits as a girl name too. Meaning-wise its any ways suitable for both genders.

  19. Is varin Suitable for an indian baby girl? I know its a boy name u listed in but i liked it as a female name. what do u think?

    • Sapana

      वरिन् means Rich in Gifts and though the word is a male noun, Its still a suitable name for a baby girl too. Just like Kiran or Sonal it wont sound odd as a girl name.
