Default Suggestions for naming my baby boy !!

As strange as it may sound, I am requesting forum members help for suggesting names for my 4 day old baby boy!

I've read a lot of stories about forum members being extremely helpful like a family to other peer members. I and my wife feel extremely proud to be a father to a baby boy but had not given names any thought in the 9 months. Now most of the names just do not feel right for my baby! I'd appreciate if you guys can help me with some nice names which are not too common but are deep in meaning as per my Hindu culture. I am a Hindu/Gujarati and would prefer a short Hindu/Gujarati/Sanskrit name for my baby boy.

Thanks for the suggestions. I apologise for not having informed earlier of his 'rashi'. Even though we generally name our kids based on their 'rashis' we are going beyond that. Both I and my wife feel that an individuals name should not be restricted to the boundaries of a 'rashi'. This is despite me being a firm believer in the same.

The names suggested are nice, but honestly, they are still not something that hits me saying 'yeah dad - thats what you should call me'. I hope you understand my situation. Some of the names are too 'gujjuish' ending in 'esh' which I want to avoid. No hard feelings, my name is kalpesh and I am extremely proud of it!

What does Rushyang, Vrushin and Valay mean? Even though these are not something that I would go for, it would be interesting to know about them?


OT: @aagoswami - have you ever seen russell peters show? If you would have you would have not recommended Hardik (all russell peters fan would know what I mean )

*Puts thinking cap on*. Some names I particularly liked:

- Shiv

- Rayhan (Nothing to do with our friendly mod Rehaan ). My best friends son has been named Rayhan too. Means "Favored by God"

- Zaid (Progress, growth)

- Aahan (Dawn)

Congratulations to you & your wife on the new family member!

Thanks GTO

Rayhan and Zaid sound more like Islamic names. I am looking out for Hindu names. I do not think that these names would reflect his identity. Aahan is a beautiful name though.

congratulations to you and your wife on the new arrival.

the names i can think of would be

Aarav

Shlok

Vedant

shayan

Nevertheless, if you could mention your surname too, it would be more appropriate to match or consider the sound factor of the name ( the way it sounds to ears i mean)

Thanks guys (and gals too!) for all the names.

Aarav and Vedant are nice. Can you tell me their meanings please?

Btw - my name is Kalpesh Patel & my wife's Jagruti Patel (so no US visa for my baby boy )

I have a guju friend named Mrigank. Not sure about the depth of the meaning but quite uncommon.

Regards,

Aarav Means Peaceful

Vedant means one who has complete knowledge.

i think Aarav Patel or even Vedant Patel sound nice to hear.

I'd consider GAGAN to be hindu enough, international enough to not cause particular problems for the western or far eastern tongue.
Has a lovely meaning - the sky.
