Dictionary of Sikh Names - Book By Parmit Kaur Chilana , Rajwant Singh Chilana
From The Backcover Of 'Dictionary of Sikh Names' By Parmit Kaur Chilana - Rajwant Singh Chilana
Sikh presence in Europe, North America and other continents has become increasingly visible during the last century, and many of them the world over have occupied coveted positions because of their dedication, hard work and entrepreneurship. More and more non-Sikhs around the world want to know about the Sikh culture, religion and traditions. Sikhs are identified by their unique names but, unlike Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu names, there is no comprehensive publication or source of Sikh names. The Dictionary of Sikh Names is an exhaustive reference source that has been compiled to cater to the need of Sikh families around the world and help them select the traditional names in the Sikh religion for their offspring. The dictionary is also intended to meet the need of those who want to find out the meanings of Sikh names. This reference book would be a useful source of information for the people living in different parts of the globe, particularly in Western countries where, because of limited choice, it is still a problem to select meaningful and suitable names.
