Indian names for mixed race baby


Hi, I am British Indian and my OH is white. We have agreed on an Indian Hindu first name, English middle name. What do you think of our suggestions? Many of them will work for me - but do they cross over?! What are your favourites?

Girls names:
Shyla
Indira
Simran
Naina
Denali

Boys names:
Sachin
Roshan
Rishi

Indira + Roshan are very nice.

My friend has a beautiful name... Simmi... I think those are great crossover names. A lot of girls names end in preet or jeet and I think they often shorten it for English people!

Will be interesting to see how your LO looks when she or he is born. My friend is white with blonde hair (like her dad) but her brother has dark skin and black hair (like their mom). Neither looks mixed but looks either completely white or completely East Indian. Genetics are interesting!

Thanks you guys, very helpful indeed! Indira Rose is really lovely... I am glad your first thought was not of the former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, she was a bit of a monster...! I think we are trending towards Indira or Shyla, and perhaps Sachin or Roshan. We are also fascinated to see LO! I am medium brown skinned with light brown eyes and black hair. OH is a strawberry blonde with blue eyes and very fair skin - hoping for a good mix of both!

I love Shyla for a girl and think Sachin maybe for a boy.
None of the boys names really cross over for me as you asked about.
Tarun and Jay might be good for boys names - both are from Sanskrit.
