My cousin has a unique name which is based on numerology. He was quite fine with it till he was a child. Now as he is grown up and understands the meaning, he feels embarrassed due to his name. His name has a funny meaning and so he has become a butt of everybody's jokes.

All my cousins names are based on Hindu Gods. So it sometimes feels funny on hearing their names. Mythological names are outdated so I think a modern approach should be taken while choosing a name.

In our culture, the name of the baby is chosen according to the letter that comes after making various astrological calculations. So choosing a name with a specific letter sometimes becomes difficult.
