Shri Sita Ji has innumerable divine sweet names. Here some of those sweet and divine names of Sita Ji are quoted from scriptures.

(These divine sweet names can be used to keep Vedic-names for girls and Vaishnavis.)

1. सीता

Sita (Sītā)

Meaning : Sita, the consort of Shri Rama !

(The name 'Sita' and 'Rama' transform into each other. Both are completely suited to each other in every way.)

2. सीया

Siya (Sīyā)

Meaning : Sita.

The name 'Sita' transforms into the name 'Siya'. How?

'क ग च ज द प ब वा प्रायेण लोप' ('ka ga ca ja ta da pa ba va prāyēṇa lōpa) from this Sutra, 'ta' disappears in 'Sita (सीता)' and it becomes 'Sīā (सी)' without 'ta'; then from 'वर्णे श्रुति - avarṇē ya śruti', 'a (अ)' is replaced by 'ya (य)' in 'Sīā (सीआ)' making it 'सीया' in the end.

3. सीय

Siya (Sīya)

After 'Sītā (सीता)' becomes 'Sīyā (सीया)', then from 'दीर्घह्रस्वौ मिथी वृत्ती - dīrghahrasvau mithī vṛttī' sutra 'aa (आ)' becomes 'a (अ)' and thus, 'Sīyā (सीया)' becomes 'Sīya (सीय)'.

In Valmiki Ramayana, Bhagavan Valmiki says Shri Sita Ji is Kanakvarna (means having golden complexion), she is Kanchanangi, so she is called Harini.

Sage Valmiki says in Ramayana, there is none so beautiful lady like Sita Ji in whole world, therefore she is called Harini in Shri-Sukta, the most beautiful charming lady.

Sita Ji became a deer (Harini) in the forest to disport with Bhagavan Shri Hari Shri Rama. She has big comely eyes like deer, so she is 'Harini'. In forests, deer come to play with her without any fear, treating Sita as their friend, She is friend of all creatures.
