What are some Indian boy names?

While nature is a huge inspiration for Indian names, we can’t discount religion, either. Just as other cultures pay tribute to their deities, for example by using the name Jehovah or Jesús, many Indian names also take inspiration from the gods. Some of the post popular Hindu baby boy names include:

  1. Aakesh
    For the little boy who’s a gift from God, Aakesh means ‘Lord of the sky.’

  2. Ishaan
    Paying tribute to the gods, Ishaan means ‘Lord Shiva.’

  3. Mayan
    If you think your little one will have a lot of love in his heart, you can’t go wrong with this one, which means ‘god of love.’

  4. Rayaan
    Similar to the Westernized Ryan, this means ‘gates of heaven.’

  5. Vedant
    Just as God is all-knowing, so too will your little boy be if you name him this – meaning ‘ultimate wisdom.’
