QUESTION: Thanks for your answer, it is my daughters name and i want to get it tattoo'd so want it to be right as in gender etc.

Thanks again.

Kashmir is northern most state in India and
I have translated it as it is spoken in Hindi.

However, Hindi uses Devanagari [Script of City of Gods]
which is a phonetic script i.e. names are written as they
are spoken and NOT as per their spelling.

Please reply with pronunciation [phonetic spelling] i.e.
the way you actually speak the name e.g. Michael = my-kull
so that I can write it accurately.
