Choosing a Sikh Name

Like most Indian names, the Sikh baby names beginning with K listed here have spiritual meanings. In Sikhism. many names are taken from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib, while others are traditional Punjabi names. English spelling of Sikh spiritual names are phonetic as they come from the Gurmukhi script. Different spellings may sound the same. *K is sometimes interchangeable with Q although Q is seldom used as a symbol for a Gurmukhi letter, however Q cannot be substituted for KH as the Gurmukhi letters they represent are not equivalents.

Spiritual names starting with K may 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).
