Wondering what to name your baby, or whether the name you have chosen is a good fit for your baby’s rashi? Here is our hand-picked list of cute baby names according to rashi, for both boys and girls!

We Indians have always been big on astrology. Being one of the earliest people to have understood the significance of and thereby studied astrology, we have a rich history of drawing birth-charts, marking the exact moment in time when an individual was born.

The birth-chart – or kundali, or patrika, as it is commonly known – is an elaborate document that records the exact position of the celestial bodies in our solar system, and their relative positions with each other, at the moment of the person’s birth. These affect the child’s life, and determine his specific traits.

Birth-charts continue to be used through life for different purposes, most typically for planning auspicious ceremonies such as janayu or thread ceremony, marriage, graha-pravesh, etc. However, probably the very first time that a kundali is consulted is to name the baby!
