Reference: The Daily Post #19
2011 has started with lots of fun and Happiness. One of my colleague was blessed with a baby boy, few days ago. You might think, what’s this post about? Off course I’m going to write about the bravest thing, I have seen few days ago. Naa, I’m not going to talk about all pains and sufferings of Cesarean operation, labor pains and all. My post is about event that follow the birth of a child. I’m, in no way undermining the contribution of women to this society…. Confused ! me too… 🙂
Congratulations and wishes were pouring in from all corners. But my colleague, who recently became a proud father, was all pensive and confused. Lets call him ‘Mr. 786’. I asked him, Sire, you look worried, why so? The matter at hand was really worrisome. It was to decide the future and the dignity of the baby boy. The question was “What should we call him?”
You might be thinking What the fuss about? Is it so tough to name a child? Yes it is. ‘Coz the constraints are many.
The name must be according to Hindu Zodiac sign
It should match with the name of his elder brother. People like to relate with duo like ‘Ram-Shyam’ or Ram -Lakshman’. Stuff like that.
Most importantly, The name should be such that it can’t be modified to some slang, easily. — Why is this most important part out of all? It’s ‘coz this is about the dignity of the baby. I have seen names being modified in a rude way. it just takes out all beauty out of it and what remains is clutter. few examples would help you understand the seriousness of the matter at hand. A friend of mine named ‘ Partha‘ was called PARATHA (Paratha is chapathi made of wheat flour). The most infamous characters from the epic Mahabharata were called ‘Duryodhan and Duhshashan’. Do you know, what their real name was. It was Suyodhan and Suhshashan. The change of name completely changes the meaning behind it. While Sushashan means One who manages things well, Duhshashan means completely opposite.
You might have got a feel why this matter is so serious. Poor Mr. 786 searched internet clicked some hundreds of website for baby names and has selected some thousands of name, to finally come up with One. This is the bravest thing, I have seen in the recent times. 🙂
Please Help my friend by suggesting some Good baby boy name starting with ‘S’ or ‘A’.
