    This is funny, minus the cultural appropriation and stuff. Just call me Shiva Truth Ganesh.

  • edee

    Mala Spice Dancer! ;)

  • Chris

    Every Hindu baby-name is actually derived from the Sanskrit, and has a specific meaning.

    Google for Sanskrit or Hindu baby-names.

    You will see a Hindu Sanskrit baby-name out there, that best describes your individual personality.

    This then shall become your Yogic first-name.

  • mine’s summer crescent sprout, which sounds like something you’d actually find at the farmer’s market.

  • Aspen Mountain Chakra… I don’t think I’m in a rush to use this one! :)

  • Karma Journey Miracle. I’m off to the DMV to see about changing my driver’s license. My friends can call me Karm. I like it.

  • Dr R K S Rathore

    Yoga results in bliss of a person and that is why all Sanyasin practicing yoga have their names ending up with suffex -ananda (i. e. Bliss) for example Brahamananda, Swaroopanand, Krishnanada etc. etc.
    Since my first name is Ram so I will become Ramananda

  • Chris

    This chart makes no sense at all.

    Instead, google for Hindu baby-names.

    You will see Hindu baby-names (in Sanskrit), along with the meanings of those names. Then, select a Yogic first-name for yourself, that best describes your personality. Now, THAT would make some sense.

    For example, if you are a very calm and peaceful person, you could be Shanti (Peace in Sanskrit), and so on !

  • Heidi

    It’s meant in fun! :)

    Quick, I need new voter ID with my new name. Let’s see — here in PA that would make me one of the 179,000 with no state-issued ID. It will cost me a couple of hundred dollars I don’t have, and weeks of bureaocracy I can’t push. Then, alas, it’ll be election day, and I, Coriander Shakti Shine, won’t get to vote.

    Light a candle for the ACLU. for more info see here http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-57481869/pa-voter-id-law-on-trial/

    Rainbows and flowers,

    This Chart makes no sense. What would make sense is for you to pick a Yoga-name, based on your individual-personality, and then find the suitable Sanskrit-name that most closely highlights the particular traits of your personality.

    Example : If you are very calm and level-headed, you would be Prashant (male) or Shanti ( Female ).

    If you are very friendly, you would be Sneha (female). If you are very popular, you would be Priya (female). If you think that you are truly enchanting, you would be Mohan (male) or Mohini (female). You get the idea.

  • What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not actually a lot
    more well-liked than you may be right now.
    You’re very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in relation to
    this topic, produced me in my opinion believe it from so many various
    angles. Its like women and men aren’t involved except it’s something to do
    with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs excellent. Always
    handle it up!

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few folks are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.

  • Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!

  • fantastic issues altogether, you just won a new reader.
    What might you recommend in regards to your submit that you just made some days ago?
    Any positive?
