Uma is a girl’s name of Sanskrit origin. It translates to “splendor,” “tranquility,” and “fame.” Uma is also one of the many names that are used to reference the Hindu goddess Parvati. Parvati is the goddess of power, nourishment, devotion, and motherhood. In pop culture, perhaps the most recognizable Uma is Uma Thurman, an American model and actress who has appeared in films like Dangerous Liaisons, Kill Bill, and Pulp Fiction. This fashionably short name can be chosen to pay tribute to the Hindu goddess or accomplished actress, or simply because it stands out with a delightfully zesty punch.
