Choosing a Sikh Name

Like most Indian names, the Sikh baby names beginning with N listed here have spiritual meanings. In Sikhism, some names may be taken from the scripture of Guru Granth Sahib, while others may be traditional Punjabi names. English spelling of spiritual names are phonetic as they come from the Gurmukhi script. Different spellings may sound the same.

Spiritual names starting with N may be combined with other Sikh names to form unique baby names that are appropriate for either boys or girls. In Sikhism, all girl's names end with Kaur (princess) and all boy's names end with Singh (lion).
