Hello all,
After many years of trying and a few false starts, we are expecting our first child, a baby boy in 2.5 weeks time. My DH is Indian and I am white British.
We cannot come up with a name we both really like and are aware that time is rapidly running out!
We would like an Indian Hindu name. Have looked on Mumsnet, nameberry and other Indian name websites but nothing really stands out :-(
If anyone had any suggestions it would really be appreciated!

I have a Sachin.
He suits his name (took a while to grow into it!) same heritage as yours smile

Wow! thanks for all the replies :-)
SOPHRONIA....thanks so much for all the suggestions...some really nice names there....love Akash and Shravan
LOVELILIES...I really like Sachin...not sure why I have not thought of it before...esp as my DH is a big cricket fan!
CHICK....I really like Krishna and Indra from your list...was just worried that Indra sounded a big girly? But love Indy as nickname

I know a Rohan. I love his name!

Indra and Rohan were on our list too.
Sachin is good because when you get the inevitable hmm face from English people about his name, you can just say- he's named after a famous cricketer grin
Unfortunately I have to spell it out frequently, but I guess you get that with lots of names!
Let us know what you decide!
