Reply to: Krishna usage by Sian

Names which are often shortened to Krishna are more common (e.g. Krishnamoorthy, Krishnagopal), but Krishna itself is also quite common, especially, but not exclusively, in South India. The female name Krishna (with a long -a as in English car, instead of the schwa) is common also in the north, as also the male middle name. Derived forms like Kishan appear as well.
