Top 155+ Nepali Names For Your Child

The Nepalese naming convention for a newborn baby is largely similar to Indian naming customs. Often, after a baby is born, the parents consult an astrologer who looks at the horoscope and helps to pick a name for the newly born boy or girl.

The popular first-middle-surname order is followed for Nepali baby names. Nepali baby names for a baby are usually chosen by tradition and derived from the names of Gods. In the olden days, having names of a Hindu God or Goddess was very common. It is also very common to add middle names related to God as part of Nepalese baby names.

Nepali names such as Ram, Hari, and Krishna are some of the most popular boy names in Nepal, and Sita and Laxmi are popular Nepali names for girls. Common Nepalese names are picked from mythology and are often influenced by other ethnicities too. Nepali names from different languages and influences are common. Nepali baby names often have Sanskrit or Pali origin, but modern-day names have had other influences. The current generation has also had influences from Nepali names from Bollywood movies.
