DS is 12 days old, and doesn't have a proper name yet... DP is Indian I'm English, we've decided DS is to have an Indian (Hindu) name but I can't settle on any! His 'pet' name is Pip, and always will be to me but the boy needs a name!
Has to be by tomorrow as we need his birth certificate for some official documentation.
I'd like a name which is easy to spell/ pronounce as we live in the uk and may be moving to nz in the future.

So far the short list is:

Krishna
Nikhil
Sachin
Aaryan

Opinions please mners grin

Krishna or Sachin.

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Tue 21-Jan-14 22:36:16

Krishna comes from Harry Krishna, right? At least here where I live, those associations would be there. I think it's a reallycool name and this is my first preference.

Sachin I have no clue of the origin but looks and sounds nicer than the other two.

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Tue 21-Jan-14 22:36:59

Definitely NOT Aaryan.

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Tue 21-Jan-14 22:37:55

Call him Krishna!!!!

(Let us know what you decide)

:-)

MistletoeBUTNOwine Tue 21-Jan-14 22:38:34

Why not aaryan?

MuttonCadet Tue 21-Jan-14 22:39:06

I really like Nikhil

Kbear Tue 21-Jan-14 22:40:19

Nikhil

Drew?

Is Krishna a unisex name? My husband's aunt is called Krishna so it's more of a female name for me (although I know it comes from Lord Krishna in Hinduism - and it's Hare Krishna, not Harry Krishna).

For me, tbh, Krishna is too much of a religious name. Aaryan is tricky because of the Aryan connotations.

But seriously, if you're registering tomorrow and don't have a clue, I'm worried you're going to regret whatever you choose.

Niven?

sachin is famous cricketer ..so would work in nz as well as they also play cricket, nikhil ok but wouldn't go for either of others ...
Pip generally nn for Philip but can be for Percy or piper or pippin too!

MissPryde Tue 21-Jan-14 22:44:36

I was thinking the same about Aaryan - too close to Aryan for my liking.

I think Nikhil is great. But if none are a favorite, I would poke around some more name lists and see if something 'fits'. You don't want to change your mind later.

Vikram?

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 22:46:28

Maybe see if there are any nice names linked to his nakshara? Might be fun even if the names are not to your taste!

I like Krishna and Nikhil from your list.

Bythebeach Tue 21-Jan-14 22:47:07

Rohan?

MistletoeBUTNOwine Tue 21-Jan-14 22:47:22

DP likes Aadi...
I do too, but it makes me think of Dev's son on coronation street! Am I being silly?

Chooster Tue 21-Jan-14 22:48:11

I like Sachin or how about Yashul. I like Yash as a nickname

Chooster Tue 21-Jan-14 22:48:55

Aadi great tol

LePetitPrince Tue 21-Jan-14 22:50:08

Ravi!! Totally cool.

iwantavuvezela Tue 21-Jan-14 22:50:48

Sachin ...... Love this name ......

NannyR Tue 21-Jan-14 22:50:58

I love Sachin and Nikhil. What about Arjun?

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 22:52:04

Ravi is sooo cute. Do you and dh like Ravi, mistletoe?

I have just renamed myself Kumari to fit my nakshara.smile

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 22:54:47

Arjun lovely too! I love Indian names.

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 22:56:28

Kumar is nice.

GimmeDaBoobehz Tue 21-Jan-14 22:57:40

Ravi, Aadi or Sachin all nice. Not keen on others.

anothernumberone Tue 21-Jan-14 22:58:14

I love Anil.

IHaveSeenMyHat Tue 21-Jan-14 22:59:21

I like Ravi too.

Flumpy2012 Tue 21-Jan-14 22:59:56

How about krishan? I looked after the most lovely boy called krishan and it's an Indian name for a boy and not dissimilar to the one you like smile

NannyR Tue 21-Jan-14 23:00:22

Sunil is another lovely name.

PirateSchool Tue 21-Jan-14 23:00:46

Sachin (depending on its meaning) is great - pronouncable (I assume?) spellable, has a nice sound.

Pip for a middle name though right??

Good luck with the decision!

PS someone suggested Vikram which I also like, know one and again it sounds nice.

Ikeameatballs Tue 21-Jan-14 23:01:12

Nikhil or Sachin.

Longdistance Tue 21-Jan-14 23:01:31

Rahul?

MistletoeBUTNOwine Tue 21-Jan-14 23:01:57

Ravi is a bit meh...
I do like Krishna best, bit I don't Love any, dd is called Lily btw

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 23:07:16

Lily and Krishna. I like it.smile

AcrylicPlexiglass Tue 21-Jan-14 23:08:01

I think you will come to love it as it will be him.

natandmat Tue 21-Jan-14 23:09:18

Arjun?

Didyouhearmeontheradio Tue 21-Jan-14 23:14:33

Well, what about Philip, Pip for short. Use one of the others for middle?

MistletoeBUTNOwine Wed 22-Jan-14 19:18:18

Sachin Leo.
