Thinking of calling our baby Shivani
What do think of the name? Have you heard of it before?

I am of Indian origin so have come across it. I think it is a beautiful name and not too common either. Nice choice.

Sounds like a Hindu name to me (God Shiva) so unless you know the meaning etc you might want to explore first (I don't know what Shiva signifiessmile it might be beautiful and appropriate, or not.

I used to work with a Shivarni. I always thought it was a nice name.

We are actually Indian, just want feedback on whether its not too hard to pronounce and if you like it?

Love it, pretty name. I am also of Indian origin and knew a Shivani at school. I haven't come across it since so I am sure it is not too common.

What a lovely name! Have never come across it before but it's great, and I definitely don't see any difficulties in pronunciation.
