Harsha is a Sanskrit masculine name encapsulating a deeply expressive heart and mind. From the Sanskrit noun हर्ष, Harsha means "joy" or "happiness" and is greatly associated with the 7th-century Indian emperor Harshavardhana (or Harsha). Within his reign of peaceful prosperity, Harsha's court was a cosmopolitan one that attracted many scholars and artists from far-flung places. Harsha himself was not only a patron of the arts, but a writer believed to have composed three Sanskrit plays. His company was one of great rapture and inspiration—his life having inspired Bana's great work, The Harshacharita. Having inspired a well-regarded Sanskrit composition bursting with a wonderous vitality, Harsha is an encouraging name to bestow upon any bright-eyed new baby.
