Etymology & Historical Origin - Krish

Krish is an Indian masculine name, short for Krishna in reference to Lord Krishna who is considered by many Hindus to be the Supreme God. In Sanskrit, Krishna or Kṛṣṇa (कृष्ण) means “black, dark” but also carries other connotations such as “all attractive” and “mysterious”. As one of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu who was sent to earth circa 3000 B.C., Krishna is perhaps the most humanlike of all the deities. His life is fully accounted for, from his celebrated birth to his earthly departure around the age of 125. In the years in between, Krishna personifies what it means to be human – from our greatest dreams and aspirations to our very real limitations and weaknesses. Krishna is everything all rolled up into one: an impish little boy, a brave fighter, a defeater of evil, lord of the cow-herders, a flute-player, a lover of the ladies, and an all-wise incarnation of God. Krishna is the driving force behind the Bhagavadgita, or simply the Gita (“Song of the Lord”). The Gita is a seminal religious text in Hinduism and acts as a spiritual reference guide on how to follow the right paths of spiritual identity, action, knowledge and faith. The Gita details Lord Krishna’s dialogue regarding dharma (Hindu moral law) during his conversation with Prince Arjuna who, having reached a moral dilemma over the Kurukshetra battle killings, seeks the wisdom of the great deity. Lord Krishna delivers his famous “action without attachment” advice: “One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful action, as the lotus is untouched by water.” (Bhagavadgita 5.10). Lord Krishna is credited with influencing every aspect of Hindu life, culture, intellect, art, philosophy and religion. He is much beloved and celebrated, and for good reason!

Popularity of the Name Krish

Krishna is a Top 10 name in India. The name Krish, however, only just appeared on the American male naming charts in 2006. Considering the name’s usage is generally restricted to Hindus, the fact that it debuted at position #633 on the charts (out of 1000) is actually quite remarkable. We’re not sure, but 2006 also happened to be the year a blockbuster Indian film was released called “Krrish” (a sci-fi superhero movie). This may have had an influence on the name’s sudden usage in the United States. Also, after 2006, the name has since diminished in popularity and is actually on a downward trend today. It’s a super cool name for anyone who appreciates the Hindu faith – a way of life that is experienced rather than defined. And Lord Krishna embodies the many complex principles that are fundamental to Hinduism.

    The Magical Adventures of Krishna: How a Mischief Maker Saved the World (Vatsala Sperling) - Features Krishna, one of the most beloved characters of the Hindu pantheon, a spirited naughty boy who grows up to save the world. Long, long ago, the world was overrun by terrible demons. Even the Earth goddess, Bhumi, was unable to protect the land. She appealed to Vishnu, God of Preservation, who agreed to be born on Earth as Krishna, to save the world from destruction. Krishna is part superhero, part mischievous boy, and tales of his exploits--from childish pranks to death-defying demon slayings to his enchantment of the milkmaids--have delighted Indian children for centuries. Like every child, Krishna tries to be good, but his irrepressible high spirits lead him into any number of mischievous escapades. In the end, though, all of his adventures lead to a happy conclusion. His mother, Yashoda, loves him no matter what he does, reminding us that children who get all the love they need grow up strong and brave and ready to save the world. The glowing illustrations, executed in transparent watercolors and tempera paints, are done in a centuries-old method traditional to India. Richly detailed, they bring to life the colorful cast of characters--humans, gods, and demons alike. Recommended for ages 7-10.
