    I’m blessed with a baby girl and am struggling while selecting her name. I like Myra and Amyra but my family wants to give name per her rashi which I’m struggling with given the unique letters – B, Bh, F. Can you please suggest a short and unique name. Her DOB is 5th Oct, 2019.

      Hi Abhishek,
      Myra and Amyra are both non-Indian origin names.
      For B names please check this list
      You may not like the Indian Origin F names for your newborn. You have non-Indian name choices like Fiona etc.
