The name Shruti comes from the Indian word which means, Knowledge of Vedas; Musical pitch.

Indian family names are based on a variety of systems and naming conventions, which vary from region to region. Names are also influenced by religion and caste and may come from religion or epics. India's population speaks a wide variety of languages and nearly every major religion in the world has a following in India. This variety makes for subtle, often confusing, differences in names and naming styles. For example, the concept of a family name did not exist widely in Tamil Nadu.

For many Indians, their birth name is different from their official name; the birth name starts with a letter auspicious on the basis of the person's horoscope. Some children are given one name. In communities that don't use family names, the third name can be a god's name, or the grandfather's or grandmother's name, depending on the sex of the child. Many children are given two names sometimes as a part of religious teaching, and "Velanati" and "Telaganya" indicate the ancestral places of their origin. These are used for subcaste identification and not necessarily used routinely as part of a person's official name or daily use name.

Due to caste-based discrimination or to be caste-neutral, many people started adopting generic last names such as Kumar. That is because Kumar means Prince son of a King, and Kumari means Princess. Kshatriyas Indian nobility sometimes use Kumar as a middle name. Film stars such as Rajkumar, Dilip Kumar, Manoj Kumar and, more recently, Akshay Kumar have adopted Kumar as their last names for marketing reasons.

Some English occupational nouns have also passed into surname usage, with surnames such as Engineer. Rajesh Pilot, an Indian ex-minister, adopted his surname after a stint in the Indian Air Force.

Some people have started to name their children after international personalities. Most of the time, the person's surname is used as a first name, like Einstein, Churchill, Kennedy, Beethoven or Shakespeare etc. Examples of names like these are Churchill B. Alemao and his brothers, Roosevelt B. Alemao and Kennedy B. Alemao from Goa, and M. K. Stalin and Napoleon Einstein from Tamil Nadu. As in Western societies, parents are beginning to experiment with uncommon names, or are using words that are not usually considered names.
