    meaning of thai name

    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help me with the meaning of a Thai name

    Its a female name : Kittikan.

    googled etc but no results other than finding other Thai people who share that name.

    thanks for any help.

    Re: meaning of thai name

    Most of thai people's names are come from Sansakrit & Pali word.

    It's not usuall used in everyday life but you could found it in thai literature
    or very formal documents. You have to know the Sansakrit & Pali root to translate
    these words. Even thai could translate only a few of these of word and when
    we want to know the meaning we have to find it in thai-thai dictionary.

    Your example name "Kittikan"Եԡҹ is consits of two Sansakrit/Pali words
    Ե + ҹ. Ե = ԭ,繷ͧ = to be praised or renown ,fame (in good way)
    ҹ = 繷ѡ = to be loved (this word is use with female)

    So Եԡҵ should means " the woman that famous and be loved (by everyone).

    You can search many difficault or Sansakrit & Palih root words here "dict.longdo.com" it's one of the best online thai-thai/thai-eng dictionary , I think.

    hi Deemcazz,

    thank you so much for your effort. The Thai script all looks a bit scary for me at the moment. For now I am just struggling to understand the spoken Thai. But it's an enjoyable struggle I must say :-)

    I will happily tell my Kittikan that she is famous and loved by everyone and especially me.

    thanks again and welcome to the forum from one neewby to another.
