Indian-ish names - for a boy

My friend is having a boy (I think) and is looking for a nice name to reflect her husband's Indian heritage - but she is British white so is also looking for something that works well across cultures. I wonder if anyone on here has any thoughts?

Thanks!

There is quite a big divide between cultural and religious names in India - is her DH of Hindu background?

Those are nice! I'm pretty sure her DH's dad is Sikh but her DH is totally nonreligious. Definitely not Muslim so that rules that out.

my sister in law has an indian partner and they found a website that listed indian names foreigners could get and picked one from there - maybe try googling that?
