Selecting a Sikh Name

Sikh baby names beginning with Z are listed here alphabetically. In general most names originating in India and the Punjab have spiritual meanings relating to the Almighty Supreme being God and Enlightener, or Guru. Sikhs generally select names with spiritual meanings taken from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib based on the first letter of a randomly read verse.  Many regional Punjabi names and meanings also relate to the divine.

Phonetic Pronunciation

English spelling of Sikh spiritual names are phonetic as they originate from either the Gurmukhi script or Punjabi alphabet. Different spellings may sound the same. In certain cases Z and J may be used interchangeably, and Zh may be interchangeable with Jh or X. Double vowels and consonants specify correct pronunciation and are often shortened for inconvenience in writing.

Create Unique Baby Names

Spiritual names starting with Z are uncommon way of spelling the Gurmukhi equivalent. As more Sikh names are written using English letters, the distinctive use of Z at the beginning of a name, or within names such as Azaad, Gulzar, and Huzra is gaining popularity. Names beginning with Z may be combined with other Sikh names to create unique baby names by adding prefixes such as Gurzail, Gurzhass, and Harzhass. Suffixes may also be added such as Zorwarjit. Most Sikh names are appropriate for either boys or girls, although the meanings of some names naturally lend a masculine or feminine air.

In Sikhism, all girl's names end with Kaur (princess) and all boy's names end with Singh (lion).
