    Name Meaning

    Indian (Chennai, Bengaluru, and Coimbatore areas): from a personal name from Sanskrit soma ‘moon’ + sundara ‘beautiful’ + the Tamil ending -m. The name means ‘one who looks beautiful with the moon (as his diadem)’, that is, the god Shiva. — Note: Since South Indians traditionally do not have hereditary surnames, the southern Indian name was in most cases registered as such only after immigration of its bearers to the US.
