Proper names cannot be translated.

London in English remains London in Sanskrit and Josie and Carly will be same in Sanskrit.

Hope this helps.

Lot of Christian, Muslim and Jewish names have common origins like Joseph and Yousuf, and Mary and Mariam, but it does not extend to Sanskrit based names or Dravidian names. Indian languages do not have Judaic roots.

But there are words of Indo-European past which are similar - dental and danta, nose and nasa, generate and janani, osteo and asthi (bones), door and dwar and so on. But this evidence is very weak for names. Although there will be names like Sheila which will be there in India too - probably just a coincidence.

Just add little to the subject, Indian names have meaning.

Sanjiv which is my name means - lively or one with life

Narendra which is the first name of Modi the Prime Minister of India means the King

and so on

There is no name without meaning.

Whereas the common European names like John, Ian, George, Harry, Elizabeth, Mary Jane, Susan have no such meaning. I may state there may be some meaning or the point of origin of these names, but I am not aware of it.

Hello Sanjiv,

thank you very much for answering me.

Maybe I did not express myself correctly. What I need is the two girls names in written Sanskrit language.

I already have the name Mila in Sanskrit language as a tattoo on my arm. The other two girls meanwhile are wondering why they are still missing ;-).

Thanks again for your time and help so far.

Best wishes - Anja

Sanskrit is written in Devnagari script.

Oh now I understand that you want your name written in Devnagari script.

Hindi and Marathi languages also are written in Devnagari script.

Any tattoo artist from India will write the name in Devnagari Script .

Josie will be written as जोसी

Carly will be written as कार्ली

These are not translations - just a literal write of the names in Devanagari script.
