I like this name but I'm not of Indian descent, so I can't use it on a child.

The name also seems to be used in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and among some other Turkic minorities in Russia (such as the Bashkirs). In the Kazakh Cyrillic and Kyrgyz alphabets, it is written as "Индира" while it is "ىيندىيرا" in Kazakh Arabic.

I can't wait to use the name Indira for my future daughter after reading the lovely comments especially its etymological meaning of the name. Though not common in Ghana, I hope to promote its adoption after naming my lovely daughter with this great name. Indira is an answered prayer to my request for a baby girls name. Francis from Ghana.

Indira Gandhi was an Indian politician and central figure of the Indian National Congress party, and to date the only female Prime Minister of India. Indira Gandhi was the daughter of India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. She served as Prime Minister from 1966 to 1977 and then again from 1980 until her assassination in 1984, making her the second-longest-serving Prime Minister of India after her father.

My mother had another name in mind for me but then my dad decided my name should be INDIRA, no way around it. He also told me it was In-dira (in Spanish emphasis on the first "i"). I've been using INDY due to most people finding my given name hard to pronounce or follow, even after spelling it out. But after reading these comments, I'm proud of my full name and going back to INDIRA. I thought it meant SPLENDID (looked it up once) but I also love that it means BEAUTY. It truly is a beautiful, one of a kind name and I will be proud to say it aloud from now on to everyone when they ask me what my name is.

It is actually pronounced in-dee-ra and sounds beautiful when pronounced properly.
Love my name.

enchy  3/9/2009
I find the name, when pronounced in English and not in the correct way, absolutely terrible. It's not exactly ugly, but it sounds so like the name of a snobby, I-am-better-than-the-rest kind of girl.

I absoutly LOVE this name. It's stunning, beautiful, regal and I can't wait to use this name. The correct pronunciation of this name can be both In-Dee-Rah or In-Di-Rah; but it sounds great either way.
Kalanitakashi  3/20/2008
Just for all of you who think it is pronounced "in-deer-a", it is actually pronounced "IN-thra". Sorry to crush the moment. :P
I think it sounds strong and nice even pronounced correctly, but not quite beautiful.

Personally, I think this name is absolutely beautiful. Normally I don't particularly like 'I' names, but this one is just indescribable.
an0nymous  12/13/2006
This is a beautiful regal name. Love the way it sounds and the meaning. I would use Indy as a nickname when young, and the full name in adulthood.

The meaning of the name doesn't suprise me. It is such an elegant name.
