I've been going back and forth for well about 12 months now and I'm still non the wiser. DP is Indian, I am English. I love the name Zian/Zyian but my good friend has named her DS this so it's a no go. Please please give me some unusual names. If I can't think of one by tomorrow he will be named Lucas, nice but too plain but it's the only one we can semi agree on.

Arun or Kiran?

Lucas is nice but I would definitely go for an Indian name as I think there are some lovely ones.

Anjor
Harish
Jai
Jatan
Kamran

?

Would Zev be too similar......?

Zaid
Jai
Kiran
Hari
Arjun
Dilip

Lucas is lovely (I may be biased though) but I would go for something indian.

just asked the dc's for unusual but cool boy's names in their schools:

dd1 - voole (pronounced 'vole' apparently)
ds1 - trent hmm
dd2 - ocean, odin, forest, blue

sorry, not much help here!

This is an amazing resource: www.indianhindunames.com/index.html.

Also: www.babynames.org.uk/indian-boy-baby-names.htm.

Or: www.ourbabynames.co.uk/indianboy.php

No Z names though.

Lucien?

Is DP Hindu / Sikh / other?

JiltedJohnsGhoulie Thu 20-Oct-11 10:06:36

How about Rohan which is Irish and Sanskrit? Lovely name too.

Please choose an Indian name to reflect your dh's heritage. Lucas is indeed plain, a little dull and quite widely used already.

I like Rohan, Zaid and Arun from the suggestions above.

JiltedJohnsGhoulie Thu 20-Oct-11 12:03:09

Have you chosen yet Bella?

Fixture Thu 20-Oct-11 12:43:41

Tarun
Adil
Akmal
Arjit
Chandrak
Darshan
Farid
Himadri
Inesh
Jashan
Kumar
Natesh
Rasul
Sahil
Vikesh

On the way to the office as I type! Thank you all SO much for got suggestions, we've knocked Lucas off, too dull and have come up with Ziya.... What do you all think?! It's not exactly Indian but we both love it.

NoHunIntended Thu 20-Oct-11 14:58:51

Ace!

JiltedJohnsGhoulie Thu 20-Oct-11 15:00:04

Glad you've binned Lucas. Why did you decide to go with an arabic name though bella?

TiarasTimeOutsAndTantrums Thu 20-Oct-11 15:01:26

Ziya is lovely!
<puts on mental list for DC3 if DP ever agrees>

Xiaoxiong Thu 20-Oct-11 15:03:48

I know two half Indian half British boys - one called Ranjan and the other called Rohan as suggested by posters above.

Ziya is a girls' name to me - not only have I met a girl named Zia but it sounds a lot like Mia.

Ziya is great - cool and not overused. Glad you binned Lucas.
