Meaning & History

Traditionally believed to be derived from Sanskrit सखिसेना (sakhisena) meaning "friend of the army", from सखा (sakha) meaning "friend, companion" and सेना (sena) meaning "army". Alternately, it may have come from संकिसा (sankisa) referring to the ancient city of Sankassa in present-day Uttar Pradesh state.
