Meaning of the baby name SIVA.

  

SIVA (शिव).  Hindu myth name meaning "auspicious."  A member of the Trimurti, the other members being Brahma and Vishnu.

SIVA.  In Hindu mythology a form of the abstract Deity Brahma as the destroyer and reproducer of life.  He forms the third in the great Hindu triad, and his representations are horribly obscene. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

    The name Siva means "auspicious;" like the other deities, he is represented as the Supreme God, though having over a thousand names, such as "The Lord of the Universe," "The Destroyer," "The Reproducer," "The Conqueror of Life and Death," etc., etc.  His especial worshipers are called Saivas, who exalt him to the highest place in the heavens; he is represented as Time, Justice, Fire, Water, The Sun, as also the Creator and the Destroyer... (Hindu Literature, or, The Ancient Books of India, Reed, 1891).
