Sindhi Baby Names
Sindhis are a Sindhi-speaking ethnic group of Indo-Aryan origin native to the Sindh province of modern-day Pakistan. After independence of Pakistan in 1947, most Hindu and Sikh Sindhis migrated to India and other parts of the world. Sindhi culture is highly influenced by Sufi doctrines and principles. Sindhi Hindus also believe in tenets of Sikhism but are predominantly Sahajdhari. As a result, this group of Sindhis can be regarded as concurrently following both Hinduism and Sikhism.
Sindhi is community in the Hindu religion with faith in Jhulelal as their deity. The region received its name, Sindh, from the River Sindhu (Indus), and the people living in the region are referred to as Sindhi.
Sindhi is an Indo-Aryan language of the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European language family. It has influences from a local version of spoken form of Sanskrit and from Balochi spoken in the adjacent province of Balochistan.
Hindu Sindhis tend to have surnames that end in '-ani' (a variant of 'anshi', derived from the Sanskrit word 'ansh', which means 'descended from'). The first part of a Sindhi Hindu surname is usually derived from the name or location of an ancestor. In northern Sindh, surnames ending in 'ja' (meaning 'of') are also common. A person's surname would consist of the name of his or her native village, followed by 'ja'.
