So many good suggestions here, including the one I’ll mention but my absolute absolute favorite [name_f]Indian[/name_f] name is [name_f]Sita[/name_f]. If I had any claim to it whatsoever I would use it in a heartbeat, so I can’t recommend it highly enough.

[name_f]My[/name_f] daughter’s name is [name_f]Anya[/name_f] and a Nameberry on here mentioned that it also has an [name_f]Indian[/name_f] origin and meaning besides European. I love it of course :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

[name_f]Priyanka[/name_f]. It has its charm and is not too out there imo

[name_f]My[/name_f] own favourite has yet to be mentioned: [name_f]Lalita[/name_f]. I adore the playful little dear, but alas, I do not have the heritage to use it.
