What is in a name? Selecting baby names from nakshatra

namakarna sanskar

What is in a name? Very much if the wit of man could find it out.

This small article on Jyotish is about selecting name of a child, mostly a new born baby based on her birth nakshatra. This is to be used during namakarana samskar, an important ceremony that is performed after 10th day of birth of the baby.

The idea is to find out the birth nakshatra and nakshatra pada, and name the baby according to the starting letter specified in the list below.

While using this methodology, there are two problems:

  • The starting letters are too vague and most of the time no good baby names begin with the letter. E.g., I was born in PurvaFalguni Nakshatra, 2nd Pada. Hence my name is supposed to begin with “ta”. One of the names that I could be given was “Tarzan”. Nope, nothing doing… in the end, good sense prevailed and my parents did a decent job in choosing my name.
  • The list is so small that it can cause tremendous amount of duplication.

To find out the starting letter of child’s name, look her Nakshatra and Nakshatra Pada up on birth chart generator page. Then come back to this page and look at the list. The letter to choose corresponds to the Pada. e.g. If Nakshatra is Purva Falguni, Second Pada, then the starting letter of the baby name should be “Ta” as it is second in the list. Similarly, if the Nakshatra is Anuradha, Third Pada, then the name should begin with “Noo” because it is third in the list. If you still have some doubt, please add a comment to this blog, or send me an email at “vedic dot astrology at gmail dot com”.

I have had a lot of visitors to my astrology web site complaining that they are not able to view this list of starting letter of names in one browser or the other because IE and Firefox are not always able to display Indic fonts properly. To solve all the problems once and for all, I have generated the list as an image and have stuck it to this blog.

Hello,
I am a Buddhist of Sri Lankan origin. As such I cannot read the Indian Script above.
I am searching for a name for my baby daughter who’s Nakshastra is Poorvashadha with Pada 3.

What sounds should I consider for my baby girl’s name?
I would be very thankful if you could give me the sounds in English.

Importance of choosing the correct phonetic name can not be over-emphasized. Vedic Numerology is the study of the planetary ruler ship through nine primary numbers. It is based on the vibratory resonance of each number. Vedic Numerology is a sacred study as it enables us to look deeply into the wheel of karma and adjust our attitude and behavior in the world. Absolutely everything is based on etheric vibration, the higher the frequency, the more force it contains. Following web-page provides several interesting real-life case studies:

Astrological name confines one to very few choices. It is suggested to be tu te ta…But my name begins with A. How does it influence our life?

A name is very important from vedic astrology point of view.
It makes half of what the person
is.

Just again my experience…
I am still learning though.

Just my two cents..
( Sorry for this end comment ).
Just to mark, this was my comment.
