Sansa is a feminine name of Indian origin.

It means “praise” and “charm” in Sanskrit which is an ancient language spoken in India some 3 thousand years ago.

This language was used in the ancient texts of Hinduism and Buddhist philosophies and shed a mystical and exotic allure to this beautiful name.

Our research revealed yet another possible origin of the name. According to another source, Sansa may also be associated with the Latin name Sancia, from the Latin word “sanctus”, meaning “holy”.

George R. R. Martin used the name for one of his “A song of fire and ice” main characters, Sansa Stark, portrayed by Sophie Turner in the TV adaptation of the books, entitled “Game of Thrones”. This is expected to spark the rise of the names’ popularity in the following years.
