Harishchandra (Sanskrit हरिश्चन्द्र) is a Sanskrit name which depicts having golden splendor.
Reference of Harishchandra is found in Riga Veda (ऋग्वेद), Mahabharata (महाभारत) and Markandey Puran (मार्कण्डेय-पुराण ).
According to Riga Veda Harishchandra means having golden splendor.
Markandey Puran refers to Harishchandra as the 28th king of the solar dynasty in the Treta age(त्रेतायुग) who has gave up his kingdom, his wife and son and finally himself to satisfy the demands of Vishvamitra (विश्वामित्र). After enduring incredible sufferings he won the pity of the Gods and was raised to his subjects with heaven.
According to Mahabharata the act of sacrificing kingdom was the cause of elevation of Harishchandra.
As we can see in the chart Harishchandra is not a popular name in the USA. In India Harishchandra is used by more than 300 people as the name of their babies.
In our opinion Harishchandra is a unique name. It has a beautiful meaning attached to it. This name has a great mythological significance.
