What do you think of Krishu, Krishna or Krishan??

Edited to add:
Krishna from my understanding is pronounced Krush-na

Edited second time:
Not so sure on Krishna being pronounced Krushna because I just heard it pronounced as Kreesh-na and Kreh-shna

I'm not a fan. It sounds cool, but I feel about it the same way I feel about Jesus or Buddha.. just doesn't seem like you should name your kid after a religious figure that's part of a current popular religion. Ancient Greek, Ancient Roman, Norse, etc.. that's different than a currently widely practiced religion.

Just my two cents. Perhaps if you're Hindu it could work, but even then I think it's iffy.

I love Krishna, but I've always heard it pronounced Kri(as in Kristin)-sh(as in Sherry) -na.

Out of the 3 I like Krishan the best.

Krishan is my favorite out of those listed. However, I think they all sound like Krishna and sort of have a religious "God" connotation to them. None are really my style.

Krishna, absolutely. Pronounced exactly how it looks.
