Prakash Name Meaning
Indian (northern and southern states): Hindu name from Sanskrit prakaša ‘light’. In the northern states, it probably evolved into a family name from use as the final element of a compound name such as Ramprakash. In South India it is used only as a male given name, but has come to be used as a family name in the U.S. among people from South India.
