Meaning:moonlight, moon; having a hare
In India, Shashi is a traditional name for the moon and a beautiful gender-neutral given name. Sanskrit in origin, Shashi translates to “having a hare.” The moon was given this name because the dark markings on its surface were said to resemble a hare. Perhaps unsurprisingly, as a first name, Shashi also means “moonlight” and “moon.” Our only natural satellite is a mysterious orb with the power to influence our tides and stabilize our climate. Baby Shashi will be proud to share a name with our silvery, celestial neighbor.
