Selecting a Spiritual Name

How are spiritual names selected in Sikhism for babies and adults?

Like most Indian names, the Sikh baby names beginning with G listed here have spiritual meanings. In Sikhism, many names are taken directly from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib. Others may be traditional Punjabi names. English spelling of Sikh spiritual names are phonetic as they come from the Gurmukhi script.

Different spellings may sound the same. However changing the pronunciation of a name would most likely give it a different meaning.

Sikh names are interchangeable for both baby boys and girls, as well for adults of either gender. In Sikhism, all girl's names end with Kaur (princess) and all boy's names end with Singh (lion).

Spiritual names that begin with G may be be used as prefix and combined with one or more names added as a suffix to create unique Sikh names with distinctive meanings.
