(The following is derived a from a message board post where I offered name suggestions
for someone requesting help.)

Sundrah (originally I dinn't find this in any name source I access, it just came to me)
Trying to find a meaning I found this
"SUNDER m. Indian
'beautiful' from Sanskrit sundara"
we could feminize Sunder as a name by making it Sundra, or Sundrah.
Or disecting it, There is Sun, which means bright star to us. And the Dra could be from the name Dara which is hebrew and means compassionate. When you make up a name you cant find in a book, you can give it most any meaning. And when a name is given to a living thing it almost always has more meaning to the giver than what could be defined in a name book.
