- Comments and insights on the name Shanti: | Edit
Its my daughter's name and its just perfect and beautiful. She's had many compliments from people on her name. Some people do mispronounce it. But not often. More so when we are in the south where people are not familiar with non american type names.
- Personal experiences with the name Shanti: | Edit
Sometimes I really dislike my name. It's really easy for people to misspell as Chantie, Shanty, or any variation thereof. I actually quite like how it sounds when it's pronounced correctly (Shawn-tee) but people often mispronounce it, saying Shan as in Shannon which I think is a rather ugly pronunciation, and a "shanty" pronounce similarly is not something you want to be named after. When I was younger I used to get a lot of people thinking my name was Ashanti like the singer, but that made me really upset since it takes away it's beautiful meaning of peace. Overall I like the way my name sounds and looks when combined with my equally unusual middle and last names, but because all of my siblings have VERY normal and American names, I feel a little out of place and don't quite like having such a strange name. On the other had, I've enjoyed not ever being in a situation where there are multiple people with my same first name!!!
I knew a girl in high school with the name Shanti and always thought it was very pretty. A few years later I met another Shanti, but overall it is a fairly uncommon name.
