709 Sikh/Punjabi Baby Names With Meanings


Sikhs usually pick names derived from the Guru Granth Sahib for their children. In the naming ceremony, a passage or ‘hukam’ is read out from the Holy book of Sikhs and the first letter of the first word from the hukam is picked for the initial of the child’s name. When the name of the child is decided, the Bhai Sahib, sitting in front of the Guru Granth Sahib, announces the name of the child to everyone. The surname Singh is added to the boy’s name, and Kaur is added to the girl’s name. The tradition reduces caste-base prejudices and displays equality amongst men and women.
