Choosing a Sikh Name Begining with Y

Most Indian names, like many of the Sikh baby names beginning with Y listed here, have spiritual meanings. Some names are simply colloquial Punjabi. Before you select a Sikh baby name, consider whether you would like it to have a spiritual meaning. Devout Sikhs usually choose spiritual names based on the first letter of a random verse taken from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib.

English spelling of Sikh spiritual names are phonetic as they come from the Gurmukhi script. Different English spellings may sound the same. The letters of Gurmukhi Y and Gurmukhi J are sometimes pronounced similarly, so in some cases the meanings of names beginning with Y may be considered interchangeable with names that start with J. However, the Gurmukhi Y is always pronounced differently than Gurmukhi Jh so that the phonetic sounds they correspond to are not equivalent, and consequently the letters Y and Jh are never interchangeable .

Spiritual names that begin with Y are uncommon and may be combined with other Sikh names to form unique baby names that are appropriate for either boys or girls. In Sikhism, every girl's name ends with Kaur (princess) and every boy's name ends with Singh (lion). Some families who have been initiated into Sikhism take the surname Khalsa.
