So you’ve already figured out how you are going to dress your baby and design his nursery. To be honest, these are the easy bits for every parent to figure out. Deciding on a name for your bundle of joy is an entirely different ballgame. But if you are from Bangladesh, how about picking names from your roots while selecting the name as well?
The personal names in Bangladesh are influenced directly by a person’s religion. Since a majority of people living in Bangladesh are Muslims, most of the names here originate in the Arabic language, followed by Farsi, Pali, Sanskrit, and Bengali.
Babies in Bangladesh are bestowed with two given names, a good name, which is used in all the legal documents and a nickname, which is used by family and close friends. It isn’t important for both the names to be related. Or parents can also use the shortened version of the good name for the nickname. Middle names are not compulsory in Bangladesh, even though it is quite common in the country. Bangladeshis rarely use a family name, so there’s a high possibility of members of the same family having different last names. But honorific name or title can be used.
