Anand, Anandah, andAnanth are all male Sanskrit names meaning "bliss". Ananda was the half-brother of the prophet Buddha. The male names Anad and Anaadi are Sanskrit names for "god". Anala "fiery", Analah "fine", and Anand "bliss" are ideal descriptive Sanskrit names which can be used as one part of a whole a multi-dimensional and uniquely meaningful baby name creation for either boys or girls. Sanskrit Vocabulary Words Vocabulary words in Sanskrit are common sources for Indian names. Some vocabulary names are typical in attributing lovely or pleasant qualities to their bearers. These type of names include: Bhaswar (glorious), Bilva (sacred leaf), Dandak (forest), and Deeptiman (lustrous) for males, and Atmaja (daughter), Aadrika (celestial, mountain), Bela (jasmine flower, time), and Shashi (moon) Other Sanskrit origin names like, Anga Tongan (male shark), Ananta (serpent), Amrik (nectar), and Anshu (sunbeam) are names derived from Sanskrit vocabulary words depicting nature and its uncontrollable forces.

Amrita is a masculine Hindi name meaning "immortality", and Balen in Hindi literally means, "child". Balarama means "powerful and blissful". Combining the name elements produces several significant meanings, such as Amrita Bali "immortal soldier", Bali ‘ Balen "soldier for the child", Balen Bali "child soldier", Balarama Bali (Bali Balarama) "powerful and blissful soldier", and Apala Balen (endearing, beautiful child). The Knowledge – The Vedas Representing divinely inspired dictation from God as it was heard, the vedas are called shRuti. The smRuti are another sacred scriptural set which represents the remembering words of God written by the ancient sages. Hinduism is a discipline who’s foundation is instilled in the 4 vedas. The samhita are filled with mantras (strong words) and represent the core of the vedas. The brAhmaNa assist with the samhita interpretation and application. The philosophical portion of the vedas includes the upanishats and Aranyaka. The upanishats are considered to be the Hindu philosophy’s benchmark covering the full spectrum of analyzing God’s characteristics, as well as the human desire for discovering a purpose to existence (suffering). There are six auxiliary members associated with vEdanga (the vedas). They are as follows: 1. kalpam (ritual) 2. shixA (pronounciation) 3. niruktam (word root analysis) 4. jyotiSha (astronomy) 5. chha.ndas.h (verse constructs) 6. vyAkaraNam (grammar) The blueprints for proper worship of God is called the Agamas. These holy books are the tantras to the vedas mantras. Four paths are outlined: charya (service), kriya (worship), yoga (union), and GYAna (wisdom). Each Hindu religion has its own individually selected Agmas set. Differences in names derived from the Agmas are consistent to the religious limitations on the set inclusions. In other words, the more Agmas included in a particular religious sect of Hinduism’s set, the more descriptive and unique the name sources available. The Seven Islands Ancient Sanskrit scriptures of the Hindu people describe the world as composed of 7 islands (continents) separated by water (the oceans). In Hinduism, the 7 islands are analogous to the lotus flower’s petals fanning around Mount Meru. The 7 islands (sapta dvlpa) are: 1. kusha 2. shalmal 3. jambu 4. plaxa 5. shAka 6. krauncha 7. puShkara The jaMbu dvlpa (#3) or the continent of Asia has 9 divisions according to the scriptures. These 9 boundaries divide the Asian continent into cultural regions and countries. 1. hari (South – Arabia) 2. kuru (North- Mongolia) 3. bhArata (the Indian subcontinent) 4. ilAvRita (Tibet regions, Himalayan) 5. ramyaka (North – Siberia, Russia) 6. hiraNmaya (North – Manchuria) 7. bhadrAshva (East – Eastern Himalayan region) 8. ketumAlaM (West – Turkey, Iran) 9. kiMpuruSha (South – lower Himalyas) Natural landscape references such as the mountains, sky, celestial bodies (especially the stars), water, and flowers, are commonly used for Sanskrit baby names. The naming customs are in accordance with the Hindu respect for the universe and natural elements, also seen in Hindu Myth Names.
