    Hi,

    Simran is a name for Sikh girls. Although male and female Sikhs are known to have same names viz. Amarjeet, Gurjeet, Manjeet, Surinder etc., yet I do not know any male to be carrying this name. Originally ‘Singh’ ending (in Sikh names) would mean a male and females had their names ending with ‘Kaur’. But now ‘Singh’ has become a surname of sorts so females are also using the same ending. So Gurjeet Singh could be both females as well as male depending how the Singh is being used. A bit confusing, I daresay.

    Simran means ‘to do jap’ as in naam simran. It also means ‘to meditate in the name of God’ when used as in ‘simran karo’.

    And Oh! therefore, going by the above logic ‘Simran Singh’ could be male also, but only females are being named ‘Simran’ in Sikhs. This is to the best of my knowledge and belief.

    Yes that does add another dimension to the whole thing -‘Simranjeet Singh’ could be both male or female.

    my son is called simrAn and Sikh names are for both sexes so although many simrans are girls
    , boys can use the name too.

    He might be of Indian descent, but he looks like a white guy. I doubt she would marry a typical Indian dude, unless he was rich.
