In 1961 when my husband and I were casting about for a girl's name, our Hindu friend at college suggested the name Shanti. We liked it and especially since we were English majors and the famous poet T.S. Eliot ended his famous poem "The Wasteland" with the word Shantih.

I still love the sound of the name.

Such a beautiful name. I fell in love with it after seeing the movie "Om Shanti Om", as one of the characters in this film is named Shanti Priya.

This name makes me think of a hunting shanty or an ice fishing shanty you stay in to keep warm.

Shanti can also be short for Prashanti which is derived from a similar word meaning Peace.

I spelled the name different, SHANTHI, with the th sound at the end. I was told that the meaning is the same as Shanti, but I like the way Shanthi sounds better that Shanti. It's my mother in law's name.
