150 Most Popular Baby Names in 2017

One of the most exciting thing about being pregnant is picking a name for your baby! We all want something that’s unique, and meaningful. If you are looking for such options too, look no further! Here is a list of the best 150 baby boy and baby girl names of 2017, hand-picked for you!

Pregnancy is already a world filled with an overwhelming rush (yes, most of those come with hormonal changes!) and the wait to meet your little one can feel like infinity! It’s some consolation that the western world actually gets to know the sex of their baby beforehand, but us Indian parents play the guessing game till D day!

What colour to paint the baby’s room? What clothes should we pick up? And the most important of them all, “What is our baby going to be named?”. No matter how many days we spend looking at the shape of the tummy or going to babas and elders to help determine the sex, we still end up trying to guess the gender of the baby till he/she is born.

This is why most Indian parents have both boy and girl names ready and frankly, it could turn into a fun game between you and your hubby as you come closer in this exciting phase.
