Meaning of the name Nanda

Sanskrit (नंद) means - "joy, happiness; son; another name of Vishnu".

Nanda (or Nandagopa), according to the Harivamsha and the Puranas, was the head of the gopas (a tribe of cowherds referred as Holy Gwals). It is said that Nand Baba owned 9 lakhs of cows. Nandvanshi Ahirs are descendants of Nand.
On the night of Krishna's appearance or birth, Vasudeva (Krishna's father) brought Krishna to Nanda for Krishna's childhood years. Nanda brought up both Krishna and Balarama. Nanda was married to Yasoda. Krishna derives his name Nandanandana (meaning son of Nanda) from him.
