Like Why people are named after Shantanu? , this is more specific than Why is God's name used for people? .

I heard about an Indian woman (possibly Hindu) with a given name of Sati the other day. Although familiar with people being named after other gods, I found that hard to believe, but checking the internet, this site confirmed that Sati is an Indian female name.

Are women named after the goddess Sati, or is it just a coincidence (the name's only two syllables long, so it seems plausible)?
