Different Lord Rama Names For Baby Boy:
Adipurusha, meaning ‘primordial being’, totally has our hearts. It sounds timeless, fresh, and most importantly, inspirational. Not many babies are being named Adipurusha these days, which could make it an ideal time to give this title to your son.
Anantaguna, meaning ‘full of virtues’, is a name that’s a bit mysterious and different. It’s not on the most popular name list these days, but that’s precisely what makes it even more attractive. It has a vintage flair that is both traditional and quirky and parents may love it.
Brahmanya, meaning ‘supreme Godhead’, is one of the strongest names on the list. We’re quite sure you’re not going to find anything more masculine. It may have fallen off the charts, but perhaps short forms such as Brahma can bring this name back in vogue in the near future.
Danta, meaning ‘image of serenity’, may be centuries’ old name, but it will still fit a boy modern born nicely.
Dayasara could be a brilliant option for parents who are looking for something that’s off beat. It means ‘embodiment of kindness’.
It’s believed that Lord Rama took birth on the Earth to destroy the forces of evil, which is the reason he’s always depicted with a bow and arrow in his hands. Dhanurdhara, meaning ‘one with a bow in hand’, signifies the same.
