Tricks of Making Innovative Baby Names: Indian Baby Boy

Whoa! Before moving ahead, here are few points that deserve your attention:

Watch the Meaning: Come up with Only Positive

(The prefixes can build or ruin the goodness of a name. For example, the word Manyu signifies Rage/Anger/Sorrow. When prefixes like ‘Up’ and ‘Abhi’ are added with the word i.e; Up-Manyu and Abhi-Manyu, the overall meaning becomes positive whereas the prefix ‘Sa’ makes the name negative as Sa-Manyu inclines more towards the rage or anger. )

Pronunciation!: Don’t make a tongue twister name

In order to find the best Indian boy name for your baby, you can’t just choose a completely unique name which can’t even be pronounced easily. Always find an easy-to-pronounce name with a positive meaning.

Verify its History and Meaning in Other Cultures

When you gear up to choose a creative Indian name for boy, make sure you dig into its history and significance. It’s not necessary that a name with a positive meaning in the Hindu culture has the same meaning or the positive significance in other languages or cultures. Keep the names with the negative meanings miles away.
Confirmation of the chosen name from a known and skilled Hindu Pundit who is well versed with the Sanskrit language and history can be a great idea.
