Gender: F Meaning of Dharma: "truth" Origin of Dharma: Sanskrit

In Buddhism, Dharma embodies the basic principles of cosmic existence--making it a fitting name for the hippyish character on the sitcom Dharma and Greg, whose middle name was Freedom.

Students of Beat literature will be familiar with the name via part of the title of a Jack Kerouac novel, Dharma Bums.

Dharma tends to evoke the feeling of good karma.
