Govinda means 'the keeper and protector of the cows and the land'.
I've had this name all of my life, and it has been explained to me many times.
Also, I am a Westerner, named by hippy parents. Several times in my life people from India have met me and insisted that this is a man's name, so it couldn't be my name. I just answer to what my mother calls me. I am sorry if that's offensive. Please take this into consideration when choosing a name.
For what it's worth, this was the title of a track by the band Kula Shaker back in the 90s, around 1996.
