Vidya is a feminine name that means “correct knowledge” and “scholarship” in Sanskrit. The emphasis on “correct” is particularly important because in all texts regarding Indian philosophy, vidya does not refer to mere intellectual information but the knowledge that cannot be contradicted, disputed, or refuted. One of the moniker’s most notable bearers is Vidya Balan, an Indian actress credited for having pioneered a change in the portrayal of Hindi cinema with her female-centric roles. Whether you’d like your little one to shine on the silver screen or gain complete mastery of a subject, Vidya is the correct choice!
