What are your opinions on the Sanskrit name Siddhi for a girl? In English the best way to pronounce it is Sid-hee (soft h, almost like Siddee but with a slight h sound).

I love it. It can shorten to Sid which is gorgeous for a kid. I taught a Siddhartha who was such a delightful child, I’ve always loved that name. Hadn’t heard the girl’s name.

Nice, but a lot of people will mispronounce it I'm afraid!

People will pronounce it Siddy. If you don’t mind that, it’s a great name!

It’s very nice, people might not quite get the intonation right the first time, but they won’t be far off.

There’s another thread about Sydney for a girl which I also really like
