Sanskrit Names for Boys
Sanskrit names for boys have their roots in the ancient Sanskrit language, which was spoken across South Asia until the early medieval period, and continues to play an important part in Hindu and Buddist religious practices to this day. Upbeat Sanskrit baby boy name Bodhi (meaning “enlightenment”) has staged one of the most dramatic success stories of recent years: it’s climbed over 1000 places up the popularity charts in the past decade, thanks to its bright, bold sound and its appearance in several celebrity birth announcements. But there are also many other strong Sanskrit boys’ names that are worth a second look in the West: try Kiran or Naren, Sachin or Sanjay, Viro or Ved.
