Sandeep derives from the Sanskrit words Sana, which means "old" or "eternal" and deep, which means "light," so the meaning of the name is most accurately translated as "eternal light."[1]

Sandeep may also be a shortened form of the name Sandipani.[1]

Sandeep is traditionally a male name, but it may also be given to females. In Sikh tradition, the name is unisex.[1]


In the United States, Sandeep is an uncommon name. It has not been on the list of top 1000 most popular names in any recorded year.[1]

In Canada, Sandeep is moderately popular. As a girl's name, it ranked as high as number 497 in 1997, and as a boy's name, Sandeep ranked at number 414 in 1997.[1]

Sandeep is also used in Australia, where it ranked 679th in 1997.[1]

Sandeep is, of course, much more common in India, but statistics are less strictly kept, so name popularity information is less accurate than that of other countries. One source lists Sandeep as the 14th most popular boy's name in India.[1]


  • The name Sandeep is often cited as a shortened form of Sandipani, and people named Sandeep are said to be namesakes of Sandipani Rishi. Sandipani Rishi is an obscure figure in Hindu tradition. He was Lord Krishna's Guru, or teacher.[1]
