Pranaad (in Devanagari: प्रणाद) is a Hindu boy name of Sanskrit origin, which literally means "resound, begin to sound or roar or cry, life giving and roar."
The baby name Pranaad is a Sanskrit compound, joining the words Pra, meaning starting or before and Naad, meaning sound. Thereby, Pranaad can be loosely translated as "starting sound or begin to sound".
Mahabharata (महाभारत) and Ramayana have used Pranaad (प्रणाद) in their works to refer to resound, begin to sound or roar or cry.
As per Vishnu Sahastranama Pranaad is a name of Lord Vishnu as Life-giver to gods and destroy the life of demons, also revives the dead back to life.
Pranaad is not at all a popular baby name in the USA. Pranaad is not a popular name in India. Pranaad is adopted by only handful of people (rarely used) in India as the name of their kids.
