Default Whats in your name?

hi people.
Lets talk about the meaning of our names (i mean our real names)...
to start with, i have a very rare name: PRIYANK

Priyank means someone who is loved very much, it comes from another word called "priya" (sanskrit word)

P.S. i have heard there are more Priyanks in Bombay than in Delhi... anybody with this name here..(as this forum has predominantly south and south-west indian members)...

Rudra: Shiva's dance form of anger (rudramurti).

My name Deepankar . I guess since it has "Deep" in it I can associate it with light and brightness.

Of course my name is Bengali but I'm a Maharashtrian

Dippy, it's a common bong name right but it's also the name of Buddha. I hope I'm right but check it out if you want.

My name is Hari Krishna ...... named after Lord Vishnu .. the Preserver of Universe .

Did you guys notice that majority of Hindu names are derived from either Vishnu the Preserver OR Shiva the Destroyer ...

Hi, My Real Name Is "mansi" And It Means A Beautiful Woman. My Hubby Calls Me "shubbhi" Which I Use On Tbhp And It Means The Most Loved One.

The Word Shubbhi Is Derived From "croele" Language Which Is Dialect Of French And Used By Natives Of Seychelles And Mauritius.
