Hari is a boy's first name that originates from Sanskrit. Meaning “brown,” “yellow,” or “tawny,” Hari is an alternative name for the Hindu god Vishnu and symbolizes someone who is forgiving of sins. In Hinduism, lions hold great significance as they are considered the embodiment or personified version of Vishnu. Besides this strong association, Hari is believed by some to have a German root, meaning “ruler of the home” or a “sovereign of the homeland,” from the name Haimirich. With a beautiful Hindu connection and roots in other languages around the world, a name like Hari will not disappoint.
