Meaning:Buffalo; Slender, graceful woman
Lalika is a lyrical name of Sanskrit and Indian origin. This girl's name is directly translated to "slender, graceful woman" in Hindi. Though this name provides an elegant picture, it also means “buffalo” in Sanskrit, giving this name a strong and beautiful connotation. While some may think of Buffalo, the big city within New York, the animal is often used as a symbol in Buddism related to a divine named Yoginī. This female deity is known for being a master in tantra, as well as the art of yoga. A parent hoping to instill a strong sense of grace and strength may resonate with a name as pleasing as Lalika.
