Indian - Hindu Baby Names
Are you looking for a nice name for your newly born child ?
Before giving a name think for a while. The name given to the child
is going to get repeated throughout its life and may be even later.
So the name should be one with deep meaning and sence in it rather
than just serving as a tag. Hence in the religious system of sanAtana
dharma the naming ceremony is given importance. The shAstras talk about
the various names the newly born child has to be given like the name of
the liked deity, the star in which the child is born, the name of the
forefathers etc. Now as it has become that only one name is given and
mainly one name stays, that name should be selected with the care for
the lovely child.
Sometimes in the name of giving a stylish name, people forget
about whether the name is meaningful or not. At times it results in
names bearing bad meaning ! The names of the God and Goddess are very
rich in their meaning and are really pleasent. Not only that, many of
them are mantras - powerful words. They result in good effect even
when uttered without contemplating on its meaning. Such excellent names
when given to the children it is pleasent for the parents, child and
the other associates who enjoy the name while calling. The names of the
God and Goddess are thousands and thousands providing marvelous
varieties to select. In order to select a suitable name comprehending
the meaning an approximate meaning of the names has been provided to
many of them.
