Do Some Research for Short-listing Names

Check out whether the name you wish to give has no awkward or embarrassing meaning in any other language. Think about a name that can make your baby happy when he or she grows up.

I believe that names of baby should be kept only by the parents; may be after consulting the elders. The name that strikes emotionally should be chosen over others.
