English/Indian names for a girl

We would like a name for our dd2 that sounds English but could also be Indian eg Anita, Tara, Monica, Sonya.

My name is Indian and I don't want my dd2 to have to spell her first name and surname every time like I have to.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Many thanks

I used to know sisters called Dipti and Kavita. Not English names but fairly easy to spell as is Meera.
I like Anita.
