The meaning of ‘Kunal‘ is ‘one with beautiful eyes‘ or ‘someone who sees beauty in everything‘. It used to mean ‘Lotus‘ in early Sanskrit, the word ‘Kunal’ was later on dropped from Sanskrit.
King Ashok named his son Kunal after a Himalayan bird which had beautiful eyes.

Subject: Your skills put to test.
I require your skills to resolve a matter that has been pestering me for ages, well almost 23 years to be precise. You would agree that your name is your identity. Your name is your calling card, literally.
My problem is thus, I do not know the meaning of my name – Kunal. I have asked everyone I know. No results. I went through online Hindi-dictionaries, I googled, I went through wikipedia, I even stopped being loyal to Google for a while and searched on Yahoo! too *shudders* You can imagine my frustration when I just keyed in my name on all Firefox-integrated-searches. Although I expected nothing of that futile exercise, but still I went through what was retrieved and I was astounded to find that three pictures have been made by my name! Finally! *sighs in relief* IMDb sheds some light on the darkness shrouding my name. I found that Kunal was the name of a son of Ashoka. But there the trail went cold. No more clues, nothing, zero, zilch, nada (ok, ok I’ll stop!)
So this is my appeal to you all. Help me in finding the meaning of my name!
P.S: As soon as I posted this, I found that the meaning of Kunal is ‘Lotus Flower’. At last! 🙂 A search spanning 23 years is over!
