Sanskrit is an Indo-Aryan or Indic language of the ancient Indian subcontinent with a 3,500-year history.  Sanskrit was the earliest language and was one of the first dialects to be spoken in Bhārata. A large portion of the Devnagari dialects are derived from it, and this makes Sanskrit names socially acceptable, unique and striking everywhere throughout India and the whole world.

For your convenience, we have selected and listed out both girl and boy names taken from Sanskrit and Vedic language of India.
