Sulochana (, "one with beautiful eyes") is a popular Indian feminine given name, and may refer to:

Sulochana (Ramayana)

Sulochana ( Sanskrit: सुलोचना, lit. she whose eyes are beautiful) was the daughter of the king of the serpents Sheshanaga, who is mentioned in the Indian epic Ramayana. She was married to Indrajit (Meghanada) who was the eldest son of demon king Ravana, who defeated Indra, hence received his title.

In the ballad Meghnad Bodh Kavya, Prameela is said to be Indrajit's wife. So, it can reasonably be assumed that Sulochana was also known as Prameela.

Sulochana was very brave and exhibited this virtue when the Indrajit, her husband, was going to war with Rama and his younger brother Lakshmana, she supported her husband by not crying and never stopped or requested to not to go to war.

Though it is neither written in Valmiki Ramayana nor Tulasi Ramayana(written in the 15th century A.D) i.e. Sri Ramacharit Manas whereas it is mentioned Telugu version of Ramayana(written in the 14th century A.D) by Gona Budda Reddy and a later Ananda Ramayana, some scholars say that after the death of Indrajit did Sati with her husband's funeral pyre, while doing so she consoled her children by saying they will be safe in the hands of Vibhishana, thus predicting the death of Ravana.
