    Indian origin sibling names (possibly twins) for Aadi

    Our first son is called Aadi which is a sanskrit name that means first or important.
    I would love some suggestions for sibling names either sex preferably of Hindu origin to honour my family though we are Bahái so any spiritual names would be nice too.
    So far I have considered Bodhi, Jaya, Tulsi, Mirabai, Anjali. I need more boys name options!

    I have no idea what cultural connections these names may have as I'm just going by general aesthetics alone.

    Maybe, for boys:

    Dev
    Devdan (If behindthename.com's meaning is correct, then I adore this name. "Gift of the gods" doesn't get much better for a meaning.)
    Harish
    Naveen / Navin
    Pallav
    Rajesh
    Rakesh
    Ravi
    Rohan

    Domenico/Dominic, Gianfranco/Gianpaolo, Giacomo, Antonio, Raphael, Calogero, Leopold, Angelo, Giorgio, Alban, Malachi, Dante, Mirek, Dario, Lionel, Asa
    Katarina/Caterina, Irena, Silvia, Aniela, Delfina, Raffaella, Apollonia, Cecilia, Pasqualina, Rosalind/Rosina, Josephine, Allegra, Alba, Leokadia, Annunziata, Bronya, Adrasteia, Vincenza, Althea, Eurydice, Regina, Mirella, Arianell

    Ooh, I love Jaya! Anjali is lovely too. Where do you live? I think Kiran and Neel/Neela cross the pond particularly well. And then Laila and Leela are very on-trend and easy for English-speakers to pronounce.

    Others:

    Aruna
    Divya
    Mallika/Malika
    Meera
    Megha
    Neha
    Nisha
    Radhika
    Rasila
    Sunaina
    Tanuja

    Aman
    Amar
    Arjun
    Imran
    Kartik
    Mahesh
    Ravin
    Yash

    Apologies; I don't know all that much about Indian names or the Bahái faith so these are mainly just ones I like the sound/meaning of.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I don't mind if the names don't roll off English speaking tongues too much…and as far as Faith goes I only mention that while a name with a spiritual reference is nice, it doesn't need to honour any particular deity. There are so many suggestions here I hadn't considered, so thanks!
