The baby boy name Omkar comes from the Indian word which means, "Religious word OM." Hindu word which means, "Omkar is another name of Lord Ganesha."

AUHM is without name and form.....it is between the manifest and unmanifest. Ganesha is a deity, a character of puranas. It might have been used as name of ganesha by some people, but it is not fair, if the import of the concept of Auhm is considered well.

Ommkar is a sound of spiritual power. And lord Ganesh is the symbolic form of sound. So we can say Ommkar is another name of lord Ganesh. But OM barrowed from three words A, OO, & Ma . means bramha, bishnu and Mahesh.
