Prasa (Sanskrit: प्रास) is an ancient word of Sanskrit origin which means ardent desire. Prasa also refers to dart, throwing, casting, sprinkling and barbed missile.
Mention of Prasa is found in Epics like Brahman (ब्राह्मण) and Sushrut (सुश्रुत) in which Prasa refers to act of casting and throwing.
Prasa is also mentioned in the Mahabharata (महाभारत) and Kathasaritsagar (कथासरित्सागर) where Prasa means dart or a barbed missile. This name also founds reference in Prataprudriya (प्रतापरुद्रीय) where Prasa denotes scattering or sprinkling. Varah-Mihir has also used Prasa in his writings where Prasa signifies a particular constellation or the position of a plane.
Reference of this word is also found in Rajtarangini where Prasa is name of a person.
As we can clearly see Prasa is not a famous name in either of the countries. Prasa is used by some 34 people in India as the name of their kids. Prasa is not used by the people of the USA as the name of their kids.
In our opinion, Prasa is rare name with Sanskrit meaning.
