Indian Baby Boy Names
With another 5 weeks to go before my due date, we have seriously started looking for Indian names for a baby boy….we want a name that is phonetically easy to pronounce here in US…that is one of the negatives I have discovered about teaching reading to kids through phonics…. for an average American who learnt to read using phonics, an A will always read as a the “sound” aeh, no matter what…this turns out to be a handicap when he/she tries to pronounce a foreign name in the right way. It robs away the flexibility of the mind to distinguish sounds from symbols. That is why I have done away with teaching my son through phonics and hope that it doesn’t get too instilled in him at school.
So coming back to Indian baby boy names, here are some on my list…
These are some names that seem not too hard to pronounce by everybody….to be honest, there’s only one name here that I really like..its Aryan….rest are pretty wishy-washy…though I like Sam, but not Sameer….
It is such an irony – I have a huge list of lovely Indian baby GIRL names but we are having a boy…here are some of my favorite girl names -
