What is husband called in Sanskrit

Well, for married people, this should be really interesting. What is a husband called in Sanskrit? Definitely, there would be many names given to the word husband.

The simple definition of a husband is a man who is married to a woman.

In ancient India, a lot of monikers were used to call a husband as wives didn’t call their husbands by their names.

In Sanskrit, various names are given to this word. I have tried to compile all of them so that you can get a variety of choices.

In this list, I have provided 33 names with which a husband can be called in Sanskrit.
