Traditional Baby Boy Names

The changes in the society are reflected in baby names. Time-honored Indian customs in choosing names are often set aside today in favor of individual choice. Names are chosen because they’re ‘fashionable’, or simply because they ‘sound nice’. It is a choice, but how much do we really know about traditional names and their meanings?

There is a belief in Indian culture that a child’s name is his first gift in life. Does this make one feel important that as an elder he or she has a very important responsibility in hand to name the child correctly? Yes, it is that important. It is us Indians who have nurtured our heritage of traditional names for future generations and are today also passing the same heritage to our siblings.
