What’s in a Name? A Lot After All!

What's in a Name? A Lot After All!

Last Updated on

Choosing a child’s name is one of the biggest steps in parenthood, once it’s confirmed – a baby is on the way. Parents shortlist girls as well as boys names to select accordingly when the baby is born.

A name is something which will give an identity to the baby for life. The baby will be known, recognised and called by that name forever. And as parents, we would want it to be extremely special. Names may be religious in nature or may imply certain aspects that meaning prosperity, good health, courage, happiness, and so on, in the hope that these qualities will be imbibed by the baby. At times, the name may also be a combination of the parents’ names. Also, few communities believe that keeping the baby’s name as per its rashi will bring good luck to the baby at all times. In line with the times, the names being kept have also undergone a profound change. At the same time, many names turn outdated every few years. The trend is also to include foreign words which mean blessings, happiness, love, God’s gift, etc. to bring about a sense of uniqueness.

Nowadays there are so many options available to search and choose names for babies, that it further adds to the confusion. There are names suggested by relatives and friends as well, basis the current trend of baby names.

I found FirstCry Parenting very helpful in this. The exact meaning of each name, the rashi and the nakshatra it stands for, along with the numerology aspect made it perfect for filtering and looking for a name for my son. I would definitely recommend all would-be parents or new parents to search for the best name here. After all, your child’s name is something which you would cherish forever and would you would like to choose the best!
