Meaning:Great soul
You're probably already familiar with the name Mahatma from the Indian lawyer, politician, and activist Gandhi. This Sanskrit name is honorific—meaning "great soul"—and is regularly used in place of Gandhi's birth name of Mohandas. It's an adaptation of the Sanskrit word mahātman, and when it's left uncapitalized, it's used as a title for love and respect in India. With a name like this, you'll get to honor your heritage and give baby a constant reminder of your love for them in one fell swoop.
