Srinivas Name Meaning
Indian (southern states): Hindu name from Sanskrit šrinivasa ‘abode of Lakshmi’ or ‘abode of good fortune’, from šri (a byname of Lakshmi, wife of Vishnu, also meaning ‘good fortune’) + nivasa ‘abode’. This name is an epithet of the god Vishnu. In South India this is used only as a male given name, but it has come to be used as a family name in the U.S. among people from South India. Among Tamil and Malayalam speakers who have migrated from their home states, it is a variant of Srinivasan.
