Variants:

  • Ananda (Indian, Hindi, Tamil)- This name seems to be primarily used as a male name in India and those with Indian heritage. The few times I’ve seen this name used as a female name is on those without Indian heritage, perhaps as a variant of Amanda or a mistaken belief that it is an Indian female name.

 

Female forms:

  • Anandi (Indian, HIndi)
