27 Punjabi Baby Names With Meanings

Punjab, the invigorating state of India, is the land of color, food, and happiness. While Punjabis are known for their strength, determination, and vivaciousness, their names reflect the multi-hued heritage and culture of the state.

Punjabis usually name their children on the 40th day after the birth of the baby. The naming ceremony takes place in a Gurudwara, where the name is picked from Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture of the Sikhs. The first letter of the hukam or verse from the Guru Granth Sahib determines the moniker to be picked. Non-traditional Punjabi parents choose names with regional influences.

Another feature of Punjabi names is that they are interchangeable or unisex, which often leads to gender confusion. This confusion is cleared by putting Singh for boys and Kaur for girls in the middle or at the end.

Below is MomJunction's collection of Punjabi baby names with meanings, sorted in the alphabetical order. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect name here.
