Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world, and it has a rich tradition of naming babies. Jain baby names are often based on religious concepts and principles, and they often have deep meanings. Some popular Jain baby names include Anant, which means “eternal,” and Jina, which means “conqueror.” Jain baby names can be given to both boys and girls, and they are often chosen to reflect the values of the parents. Jainism is a religion that emphasizes peace, non-violence, and respect for all life, and these values are reflected in the names that Jains choose for their children.
