Indian Baby Names With Meanings

India, with its culinary delights, magnificent landscapes, amazing locales, gorgeous cultural heritage sites, and diverse terrain, has been a subject of fascination since time immemorial. So it should be no surprise that Indian baby names are excessively popular all over the world.

The naming convention in India varies from region to region. While North Indians are given two to three names comprising of a given name, father’s name (optional), and surname, South Indians add even the ancestral town or village name to the given name and father’s name. Since the first two components of a South Indian name are quite long, they are initialized.

‘Namkaran’, or naming ceremony is performed in every region of India. It’s believed that ‘Namkaran’ ceremony creates and strengthens the bond between the baby and the rest of the family. The ceremony is usually performed on the 12th day after the birth of the child, but may vary from custom to custom and region to region.

Indians usually refer to the Puranas and religious texts for choosing an ideal name. Naming children after elders or ancestor is also an evergreen trend among Indian families.
