Baby naming guidelines

Naming a baby is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you. There is no "Next time". Therefore, don't give your child "just any name". Give your child the best possible name. The name you give your baby is going to be with her/ him for the rest of her/ his life. It's not a question of one day, one month or one year. Here are some guidelines which will help you in choosing a phonetically correct lucky name for your little bundle of joy ..
Astro-numerological guidelines

Choose the correct initial sound-syllable ('Adyaakshara')

The 'Naamkaran' (Baby Naming) ceremony dates back to the Vedic era which is normally done on the 10th, 12th or 18th day after the birth of a child. The basis of a child name rests solely on the 'Nakshatra' (birth constellation) falling in the 'Moon Sign' (rashi) he/she is born under. It is true that the hidden potential of a person can be activated for life by a particular cosmic sound that corresponds to an individual horoscope. Vedic-Indian astrology pioneers this art.

2. Choose the correct spelling of the name
Once you have found out the correct initial letter/ syllables and have noted down some names (or different spellings of a name) starting from that syllable, you must now strive to choose a name with the spelling - which returns a Chaldean (Kabbalistic) primary root number representing the planet which is most benefic in your baby's chart (determined through intricate Vedic astrology principles).  (view a sample)
General guidelines:
1. Pick a name that pleases you and your spouse
It is very common to find that people and relatives chipping in with their names when it comes to naming a baby. Just because you love an old long name doesn't mean you name your kid that way. It is best to go with the times and choose a name that pleases you and your spouse.
2. Don't pick just one name
Don't just have one name in mind, chances are that your best friend's daughter also have the same name or the neighbourhood trouble maker aunty shares that name. It is best to have a small list of names.
3. Team work
It is best you make a list of names together and then discuss it with your spouse before finalizing the name for your baby.
4. Be gender specific
There are lot of unisex Indian names which can be given to both boys and girls but it is better to be specific about the gender while naming your baby. For example, names like "Prem", "Kamal" etc. are names which are found in both genders and are a cause of great confusion for others.
5. Avoid silly names
We have heard names like "Laddoo".  We do agree that "Laddoo" is a good sweet and is yummy but is not right for a baby name. Usually in schools, people tend to get nick names, so it is better to stay away from a name which can be easily mocked.
