Tips for Choosing The Best Hindu Name for Your Baby Boy

Hindu Baby Boy Names

Choosing a Hindu baby boy name is no easy feat since you have so many options. And a name is a word that sticks with your child for the rest of his life. Parents consider naming their children to be a joyful and auspicious occasion, rooted deeply in their culture and religion.

Here are some tips which you can use for deciding which name to give to your child or how to go about naming him:

1. Reflecting Your View of Life

At the end of the day, the name that sticks forever should be one that’s meaningful. Picture your way of living and how you see the future. Try to find a name that matches that emotion or viewpoint. Children bring meaning into their parents’ lives, and names should weave their philosophies and aspirations into a reality.

2. Check The Initials

This tip doesn’t apply to just Hindu name but any name you think of. For example, if your child’s full name is Balram Sikhdar – spell out its initials and see what it sounds like. In this case, it’s B.S. which translates to ‘Bullshit’, and there may be a chance he may be made fun of in school. When picking a name, see that it goes well with the surname and its initials don’t sound funny or weird when spelt out.

3. Using Numerology

You can choose baby names with numerology in mind. This is when you pick a lucky number and a name that matches it.

4. Make It Memorable

A name should be easy to remember and memorable. Giving your baby a name that is short, crisp, and sounds good when read aloud is a good choice. The name could be based off a mythological character, thus representing their way of life, or represent an element of nature. It could represent a human emotion too or a philosophy. There is so much territory to explore in this regard but the biggest tip, if it’s long and too difficult to pronounce – it’s a bad idea. Make it’s short and sweet.

5. Name It After a God

If you’d like to give a child the Divine touch, name it after God. Often, in Hinduism, naming your child after a God has shown to shower blessings which manifest in the future.

6. Think Zodiac Sign and Time

If you believe in the concepts of astrology, then choosing a name according to zodiac signs and the time of birth could prove to be fruitful.

7. Going Traditional

Although we understand having a modern and catchy name may impress others, sometimes it’s the classics that stand out the most. You may think of giving your child a long name but if it’s easy to remember, unique, and worth reading aloud – why not?

When you’re picking a name, think carefully. And think.

Never name your child on impulse and brainstorm your options. Because once you do name them, you won’t be able to change on a whim or in seconds when it’s put on paper. So go through your thoughts carefully, talk to your relatives or sit down with friends and discuss.
