I love unique baby names. I did a whole lot of research trying to find the perfect name for my daughter when she was born. But in the end, I decided to name her Deepika after my grand aunt who is now deceased. Recently, when I was cleaning out my closet, I came across some of the Hindu baby girl names I had written down back then. Here are some unique Hindu baby girl names starting with D!
Dakshi- Short and sweet, Dakshi is a modern name for Hindu girls. The name means ‘Glorious’ or ‘Able’. It is inspired by the name Daksha.
Daayini- It’s rare that you will come across someone with this name. Daayini is a modern Hindu name and means ‘Generous’.
Daivi- Inspired by the name ‘Devi’ which means ‘Goddess’ in Sanskrit and several other languages. Daivi means ‘pious soul’.
Dua- Dua is a very sweet name for Hindu girls. It means ‘good wishes’ or ‘invocation’. If you are a fan of pop music, you might recognise a pop star with the same name, Dua Lipa. The singer’s first name means ‘Love’ in Albanian.
Danu- We know our wonderful earth by many names- Bhoomi, Dharani, etc. But did you know that Danu also means ‘Earth’? Well, it actually means ‘Goddess Earth’ and we think it’s a wonderful name for a Hindu girl.
