My father's name is Chattarpal SIngh. I remember Chattar from the last pauree of Jaap Sahib. I don't know what it means completely. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. I will gladly take any assistance I can get!

Thanks in advance,
Sukrit Kaur

So the name appears "Chattarpal" as joining of ਚਤੁਰ+ ਪਾਲ = Clever/smart + sustainer/holder of = Sustainer/holder of Cleverness/smartness.

Add “LION” for the Singh.

My dear brothers and sisters,

I've heard that when Sikhs are choosing a name for their baby, or when a person converts to Sikhism, to select a name they open the Guru Granth Sahib at random and whatever hukam (verse) they come upon, the first letter of that hukam in Gimirti becomes the first letter of the person's name.

I also love how Sikh names have spiritual meanings. It kind of gives your life "purpose", to emulate the attribute signified by your name.

Brother are you sure you are not a Sikh lol. No serious mal-intent involved or to offend!

You definitely qualify with your wisdom and knowledge of Sikhi.

My dear brother Ambarsaria! cheerleader

I am not in the least offended! On the contrary I feel like I've received a most excellent compliment! The name of Sikh is imbued with all of the wonderful values of your faith. That's a compliment - and then some!

May I return the compliment though and say that I think that you are an excellent Catholic (the name means "Universal" in Latin!). To be Catholic means that one is Universal - and there are few religions with as Universal a mindset as Sikhism! I learned today about an incredible Sikh man called Harbhajan Singh Yogi. He was educated in a Catholic convent school as a child. He visited Pope Paul VI in 1972 and advised him to convene a gathering of friendship and understanding for representatives of all religions. He reminded Paul VI that catholic meant "universal" and suggested that, as head of the world's largest religious organization, he would be the most suitable leader to host such a meeting. He maintained his relationship with the Catholic Church under Pope John Paul II. In 1983 and again in 1984, they met. When the Golden Temple in Amritsar came under assault from the Indian Army with the loss of life of many hundreds of pilgrims, the Pope offered his official condolences.

In 1986 Pope John Paul II convened a gathering of religious representatives of the world such as Singh had proposed fourteen years earlier - so we Catholics in effect have to thank our Sikh brothers for that phenomenal 1986 interfaith gathering that is considered the highlight of the ecumenical movement!!!

Some Sikhs are actually more Catholic than some of my fellow Catholics. gingerteakaur

Indeed the Church Fathers taught:


"...How many sheep there are without, how many wolves within!...When we speak of within and without in relation to the Church, it is the position of the heart that we must consider, not that of the body.... All who are within in heart are saved in the unity of the ark..."

- Saint Augustine, Church Father (354–430 AD), Baptism 5:28:39


"...He was ours [a Catholic] even before he was of our fold. His way of living made him such. For just as many of ours are not with us, whose life makes them other from our body [the Church], so many of those outside [the Church] belong to us, who by their way of life anticipate the faith and need only the name, having the reality..."

- St. Gregory of Nazianzus, <ORATION>18.5 (c. 374 AD)


From these two early Church Fathers we learn that there is a very important distinction between having the name of Catholic and being bodily a formal member of the Church; and on the other hand having the reality of a Christian and a member of the Church in heart. Its those who have the heart and reality who are true Catholics, not those who bear the mere name and bodily membership!

In truth I wish I knew more about the beautiful Sikh faith than I currently do but I am learning every day. I hope to learn as much as possible! For that I really need a good English translation of the Guru Granth Sahib - could you give me any pointers dear brother? winkingmunda I've mostly read the Granth so far online but its not the same as having a hand copy.

Only reasonable translation appears to be Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa. I personally do not agree with lot of it as it embeds or taints with karma, too literal, and lot of other meditative insinuations not necessarily justified in context.

But that is the only one I can think of and you can get various varieties of this at the following site,

http://www.gurbanifiles.org/translations/Gurmukhi%20to%20English%20translation%20of%20Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji,%20page%20by%20page.pdf

http://www.gurbanifiles.org/translations/index.htm

I heard none is available in hard copy but there are services who can make Hard Copy of any pdf for a reasonable cost.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji translation is about 1 year full time job. I am much tempted at times but I am not $$$ rich and need a sponsor to do it full time. I will continue to do parts of it for love though.

Take care and hoping it is helpful.

I like how Sikh names have alot of meaning. American and European names are often chosen because the baby's parents like the sound of the name, or because an esteemed relative had that name. The real meaning of the name does not matter so much.

My name is a French (Anne) or Americanized (Annie) form of the Hebrew name Hannah. Hannah was the mother of the Hebrew prophet Samuel. A different Hannah was the grandmother of Jesus. The name is said to mean "favored" or "grace" but I don't think my parents gave the meaning too much thought. One of my relatives started calling me that, and my parents decided to keep it.

Not that complicated imho.

Har means God, Lord of the Universe is often implied in that

Vinder, or Winder, means God, Glorious Creator is implied in that.

Harvinder implies more than the name says at face value. God, Glorious, Creator can be rearranged anyway you want. So .....Harvinder = God, the Glorious Creator of the Universe.

vinder and winder mean the same thing because v and w are interchangeable.
Spnadmin jeo,
If perchance, some one happens to be exactly the other side of his or her names literal meanings then what should be..... Should change the name.

With HIS grace, after taking the Gurwak from SGGS jee which was " Hum bhekk bhekhari tere, tu nijput he datta" and they named me Hardip Singh which as per the discussion going on means HIS devone light or wisdom.

While I am none as per the meanings goes. Till date what to talk of HIS wisdom, I was unable to fully adopt to HIS path or "PANTH".

So, what should I do. I know I am a real sinner who could not adhere to HIS Master's words.......... Pl advise.

There is no sin in Sikhism brother Hardipji, sometimes the actions we do bring us even closer to God. Are you talking of recognising how short you fall and wishing to correct this? or have you given up completely and wish to have no association with the path?

I am always impressed with Sikh names and meanings, Sian is the welsh version of the very plane Jane. However I am surprised to note that Jane in Judaism means Gods grace, so translation needed to find my sikh name :happykudi:

I think that Sian is also Ceanna in italian, Sianna in irish.
Now, Sianna in punjabi means 'wise'.
Many names I find are usually linked in some way.
In punjabi the word 'nadhar' means God's grace and also the name Hardial or Hardayal means God's grace.
There probably is some more punjabi names that mean 'grace'.
I find that most names are shortened from older names from certain origins.
Sian is most likely linked to Shawna, Shannon or Sean(which is more Irish)
'Shaan' in punjabi means a 'cast shadow', peaceful, pride, respected and famous.

Thanks
