. That is totally hilarious. Good that he was able to figure out how he arrived at that word. Manager would have thought he would have done that purposely.

For those wondering what the changed word was, vidyut was changed to idiot.

How about Chandrajit (conqueror of the moon) ? Given that he's born at a time when India conquered the moon. Apart from being long it's a very Bong-ish name though.

So we are willing to go beyond the rashi and get him any name that we feel may suit him and he may grow up to like.

Also, some people suggest naming him after the 'nakshatra' (birth star) that he was born in according to which the names should start with Ye, Yu, Ba, Bi, Yo, Bhi, Bha which again are a bit dicey.

But your sister's help would definitely be appreciated. Please ask your sister to keep pouring her suggestions. If she does not mind can she send across the 100 names that she has apparently shortlisted?
My Sister was out of her town (Canada) and hence the delay. According to her the little prince should be named from his 'Rashi'. So in your terms 'DH' would be 'D', 'BH' is 'B' and 'F' is 'F'. So it would be easier to find modern sounding names, yet retaining the Rashi letters that suit the baby. The 'Nakshatra' name is not very benificial to the child, this is what was told to her during my neice nameing time by a pundit.
The name list she has short listed are not all hindu names and boy names. She lives abroad so has names for all religions and both genders.

Some of the names she could gather up for you. Hope it helps.

Daiwik - By grace of God
Darsh - Lord Krishna
Devaj - From God
Dev - Divinity
Devang - Part of God
Dhairya - Patience
Dhanraj - God of wealth
Dhaval - Fair complextion
Dhiraj - Patience
Dhiren - One who is strong
Dhruv - Pole star
Daksh - Precious son

Bhav - Lord Shiva
Bijoy - Full of Joy
Biren - Lord of warriors
Bharat - Universal monarch
Bhaskar - Sun
Bhavik - Gods Devotee

The thing with naming babies is that as long as it is for someone else's kid, we have lots of suggestions that sound really good. But when it comes to our own kid, it is such a big confusion till you actually finalise on a name.

Anyway some suggestions : Rohit, Dhiraj/Dheeraj, Ankur.

That's what we named our kid. Me and my wife had a pact before the kid was born that if its a girl, I would name her and if its a boy, she gets to name him. I was so confident it would be a girl, but God willed it to be a boy. Not that I am complaining.

P.S. : I was visiting a friend in Baltimore, when his 5-year old son came in after attending a B'day party. I asked him the name of the B'day boy and he said AJ. I thought it must be some white kid, but later learnt that the kid was named Ajay. So, to the western tongue, my son's name would be A-man.

That's a tempting idea but I really would not like to be that cruel to my son!

(No offence to the names though)

oh sorry, you have mistaken me.
joke about the name raja apart,
so many names are suggested by so many bhpians.
name should be simple to pronounce, to remember, to write and most importantly should sound sweet to hear. i am sure, you will select the best one. god bless the baby with all happiness.

The Current kids names in Classical Trend are as follows
The rashi is not the deciding factor as people tend to avoid using rashi names as the same are prone to 'tantrik' processes. It sounds stupid though but there are so many things in life that need some explanation....
  • Aarav
  • Advit
  • Aarohi
  • Charit
  • Shaurya
  • Ananya
  • Vyom
  • Yash
  • Rudra
  • Ish
  • Ishlesh
  • Reyansh
  • Anit

For the benefit of others - these are a few that i received from my friends,

Salaj .... water which flows from melted ice from mountain
Oojam .... enthusiasm
Budhil .... wise person
Tijil .... moon
Timin .... large fish
Ikshu --- means sugarcane,
Ishan --- means sun
Ani — "Supreme"

Atman — "The self"
Ranj — Sanskrit for"Painted, delighted"
Ruhan/Ruhen/Rohen (alternate of Rohan) — "Ascending"
Aadi — "First, most important"
Dheer — "Gentle"
Dhir — "Wise"
Erman — "Friend"
Nabh — "Sky"
Neev — "A strong foundation"
Ruve — "Dove"
Sehen — "Patience"
Salaj — "Water which flows from melted ice"
Tuhin — "Snow"
Unmil — "Become visible"
Yamir — "Moon"
Alair — "Cheerful, merry"(Latin)
Anker — "Manly"(greek)

If you notice, most of these names are quite modern - its like the looks of the swift - you love it or hate it you cannot ignore it.

Dhairya is definitely in contention with me but wifey has rejected it outright (too common was her grouse). Also, i am least worried about foreigners pronouncing his name. By the time he is 20 and ready to travel the world, I am sure India would be a super power and US folks would be naming their kids keeping in mind that Indians can pronounce it well! Don't be surprised to see a 'Jayesh Jackson-Patel' being born to an all american family in 20 years time
O well I am sure with all the suggestions on TBHP, you guys will find a nice name.
Yes Jayesh is a stereotypical gujju name! Being a non-gujju, even I know 2 Jayeshs. And people are already naming their kids 'India'!

Best of luck for the name finding. In the meantime we TBHP guys will keep on bombarding you with names!
