Krishna was also the consort of the Hindu goddess Radha, and brother to the Hindu God Balarama, lord of the strength and wisdom. Other names of his include Govinda (caretaker of the cows), Syamasundara (blackish one), and Madhava.

He is an Incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is the one who manages this universe. It's a tough job! Trust me!

My boyfriend's name is Krishan, which seems fairly similar to Krishna. His mother is of Indian descent, so it would make sense that the two names are related.

Hare, hare, hare! I love this archetype of godhood from the Hindu pantheon. But that said, would I name an American, non-Hindu this? No. The Hare Krishna movement in the US, as loving and sweet as the members tend to be, gets a lot of bad press in our country and I think a kid could get some tough biased teasing about shaving his head and "where's your orange toga?" sort of thing if given this name.

Krishna can also be a girls' name. I heard it as the name of the daughter of a recently deceased Indian singer.

I can't believe people use this as a girl's name. The majority of the ones who do probably know very little about the source, they just think it sounds pretty or exotic. In my opinion, it sounds metallic and a bit unpleasant. I may be racking up frequent flyer miles to Conclusions here, but I wish people would actually learn about the name.

Krishna means the all-attractive personality according to Vedic scriptures.
