Etymology & Historical Origin - Nikhil

 Nikhil is a Hindu masculine name, from the Sanskrit निखिल meaning “whole, entire” as in “universal, complete,” and composed of the elements “Ni” (without), “Kh” (sky, boundary) and “L” (liked, agreed). Nikhil denotes completion without boundary – as in perfection – more literally, one who is freed from the boundaries, limitations and/or obstacles of nature (Prakruti). It is also one of the many epithets given to the Hindu gods Shiva and Vishnu. As a given name, Nikhil is quite popular in India and used regularly among Indian-Americans in the United States.

Popularity of the Name Nikhil

 Nikhil is not a very popular masculine given name in the United States, probably due to its ethic nature (only about 150 baby boys were given this name in 2013). It tends to be favored by Indian-Americans (a small segment of our population). Still, within that community, the name’s popularity is notable. It’s a cool-sounding name and “wholly” unique. Perhaps an interesting alternative to the ever-popular Nicholas.
