We are not Sikh, though DP is half Indian but then I figure loads of people call their kids Irish/French/Welsh names when they're not.

I quite like it.

I don't

no. looks like a porn star.

Agree with pankhurst, plus it may sit funny with your surname, unusual names need to be seen with the surname too.

Honestly? .... No!

Is Hardeep a girl's name? I have a male friend called Pardeep. Also have a female friend called Harpreet (she is Indian Sikh). That's lovely - much nicer than Hardeep in my opinion.

i think if it's going to be in another language, it should have a meaning that you can relate to -

otherwise you might just be calling them the Inuit version of Ernie.

(no offence to any current Ernie's out there - i just mean in terms of Benny Hill, comedy, 1970's Joe Bloggs name)

SOunds alright to me but he may get called Hardon by his little playmates when he gets to about 9.

(I did also put an expectant mother off the name Layla yesterday by saying that I knew 2 girls with that name.. 'oh, do you not like them?' 'THey are lovely girls. They are porn stars.')

When someone is drowning the other '' Hardeep'' will be drowned first because you have given him a silly name.

It's only my opinion.
