Choosing a Sikh Name

Like most Indian names, the Sikh baby names beginning with J listed here have spiritual meanings. In Sikhism, some names are taken from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib, while others are Punjabi names. English spelling of Sikh spiritual names are phonetic as they come from the Gurmukhi script. Different spellings may sound the same. In certain cases, depending on usage, J is considered to be interchangeable with Y while Jh may be interchangeable with X or Zh at the start of a Sikh Name.

Spiritual names starting with Jmay be combined with one or more names that start with other letters to form unique names. 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).
