Any suggestions for boys names that straddle both English and Indian (non-muslim) cultures? We seem to have lots of girls names but are stumped on the boys. Thanks!
Sonny, Bobby, Jimi ?
Actually, that was a bit like the end credits to The Waltons, sorry
Indian boys' namesI think a lot of them would work OK in English
I've not come across any Indian/ English names, bot these Indian ones could sound English:Timin -large fish! (shorten to Tim)Neel - meaning blueKiran - meaning rayJay - victoryHari - monkey!
Milan, it means east meets west, I think.
I have British born Indian friends called Tariq, Ali and Ismael which I think are all lovely names, although I do admit I love the name Tariq And Lol at the Waltons, g'nite Billy Bob
Deven is a lovely one.
Ash-short for Ashok or Ashley?
We were looking for the same for our boys, for their middle names; our list includedHarry/HariJay/JaiArunRohanKiranBut I agree, girls are definitely easier!
Mmm, I'd say 'Arun / Aran' is a good one. Amitabh is not great as people keep assuming that 'Ami' is a girl.
