Namaste friends, how are you doing today. Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s blessings to you and your family!
Just moving forward to know about “Lord Vishnu names starting with Sri with meaning”, let us have a small brief about Bhagavan Sri Vishnu.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is called as “Aadi Purusha” (grand first divine Bhagavan), as he is the first one who is staying in these unlimited universes since unknown time. No one knows about his birth.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s consort (divine wife) name is Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi. She is also staying with Bhagavan Sri Vishnu since unknown time and no one knows about the exact time frame of this.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s first son name is Sri Brahma Deva and he is born from the ‘nabhi’ (divine navel) of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu. From Sri Brahma Deva’s manasa (divine mind) multiple divine Devatas / Demigods are born including Lord Shiva.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is having unlimited number of names. In that, the names starting from “Sri” itself has unlimited number of names.
Let’s know few of them:
In Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram, shloka number 65, we have a shloka as given below:
श्रीदः श्रीशः श्रीनिवासः श्रीनिधिः श्रीविभावनः ।
श्रीधरः श्रीकरः श्रेयः श्रीमांल्लोकत्रयाश्रयः ॥ 65 ॥
ಶ್ರೀದಃ ಶ್ರೀಶಃ ಶ್ರೀನಿವಾಸಃ ಶ್ರೀನಿಧಿಃ ಶ್ರೀವಿಭಾವನಃ ।
ಶ್ರೀಧರಃ ಶ್ರೀಕರಃ ಶ್ರೇಯಃ ಶ್ರೀಮಾಂಲ್ಲೋಕತ್ರಯಾಶ್ರಯಃ ॥ 65 ॥
śrīdaḥ śrīśaḥ śrīnivāsaḥ śrīnidhiḥ śrīvibhāvanaḥ ।
śrīdharaḥ śrīkaraḥ śrēyaḥ śrīmāṃllōkatrayāśrayaḥ ॥ 65 ॥
śrīdaḥ (Sridah – Name = Srida): This is Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s name and he is the one who bestows ‘संपत्ति / sampatti’ (divine wealth – money is just one part of it), that is Sridah. Here Sridah = Sri + dah = संपत्ति / sampatti + bestower.
śrīśaḥ (Srishah – Name = Srisha / Srish): This is also Bhagavan Sri Vishnu’s name and he is the one who is the Eesha (Controller / Husband / Ruler / Supreme / Stronger / Lord etc) of Sri (Maha Laskhmi Devi). here Sri + Eesha = Sri (Maha Lakshmi Devi) + Eesha (Controller etc).
Sri means Maha Lakshmi Devi and Eesha (also pronounced as Isha) means the Controller / Husband / Ruler / Supreme / Stronger / Lord etc and Srishah means the Lord of Maha Lakshmi Devi, that is the Goddess of ‘संपत्ति / sampatti’ (fortune, wealth, etc).
śrīnivāsaḥ (Srinivasah – Name = Srinivasa / Srinivas): Another name of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu. Srinivasah = Sri + nivasa + h = Maha Lakshmi Devi + divinely living (abode) + He. Thus Srinivasah means, the one (Maha Lakshmi Devi) who always dwells (nithya-anapaayani) in the (Hrudaya / divine heart) chest of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu inseparably poised.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is the abode (In the ‘vaksha sthala’ / chest) for Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi. They are always being living together since ‘aadi samayam’ (unknown time) and they both are inseparable.
Where Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi is not present (where Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi is not given respect), Bhagavan Sri Vishnu will not be present in that place or person (living or non-living) and similarly where Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is not there present (Not shown bhakti / devotion and respect), in that place Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi will never stay.

śrīvibhāvanaḥ (Srivibhaavanah – Name = Srivibhavana / Srivibhavan): The one who assures / judges / distributes / grants / dispenses the merits (that is Sri) of ‘Karma phala’ (fruits of our deeds / action). Bhagavan Sri Hari is the 100% divine law maker and law provider. Srivibhaavanah = Sri + Vibhaavana + He.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is the greatest and best ruler of the unlimited universes (orders). Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is the provider and dispenser of all the fruits of our action (That is called Karma Phala = fruits as per our Karmas).
śrīdharaḥ (Sridharah – Name = Sridhara / Sridhar): As said above, ‘Sri’ means Maha Lakshmi Devi and Dhara means bearer (holder). He is the bearer or possessor of divine fortune. Sridhara means, he is the one who is bearing / possessing Maha Lakshmi Devi on his ‘vaksha sthala’ (Chest).
For this reason Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is also known as Srivatsavaksha / Srivaasa / Sripatih (Explanation of these names is given below).
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is the one who bears / holds a divinely auspicious mole (emblem) on his Chest called Srivatsavaksha. This divine mole is none other than Maha Lakshmi Devi.
Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is the one who is the abode for Maha Lakshmi (Srivaasa = One who lives in Maha Lakshmi Devi) and similarly She (Maha Lakshmi Devi) is the one who eternally lives with Her Bhagavan Sripati (He is the pati / divine husband of Bhagavan Sri Vishnu). That’s why Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is also calledas ‘Lakshmi Narayana’.
Both Bhagavan Sri Vishnu and Maha Lakshmi Devi have been always living together, even today they are living together and will live together upto ‘ananta kalam’ (Grand infinite period) and they are inseparable.
Where Maha Lakshmi Devi is not present Bhagavan Sri Vishnu will not be present and where Bhagavan Sri Vishnu is not present, at that particular place or person (including living and non-living beings) there Maha Lakshmi Devi will never ever will be staying. Sridharah = Sri + dhara + h = Maha Lakshmi Devi + bearer (holder) + He.
