Say hello to little master

Aaron Chanakya Balan.

a generic looking, but studio quality (ahem!) baby photo (pls pls ignore the shake 😉 ). IMG_0329

The explanation for the name goes like this:

ஆரண்யம் (aaranyam) in Tamil means forest. Aaron in Hebrew means mountains.  So we decided to go with Hebrew spelling for English version and Tamil word ஆரண் (aaran) for Tamil version. Pronounciation of both Aaron and ஆரண்  are the same.  That sorts out his first name. we also wanted to have something similar to muffin’s middle name. My choices were Achilles and Chanakya (my choice for first name to go with Achilles as middle name was Cyrus. so, Cyrus Achilles Balan). Obviously Chanakya got the green and Achilles got rejected straight away. As with shortage of names for boys, we didn’t have patience to think or look for more names. Many of our friends and family are still unsure whether they like the name Aaron, but most of them immediately brighten up when I say the second name and approve of it. some like both the names, the rhythm in the full name and in relation to Muffin’s names.  It was a similar story when we first announced Muffin’s name that some didn’t like the first name some liked both the names. Now invariably everyone likes Muffin’s name, esp the first name. I am hoping for a similar result this time as well.

I like the first photo for its studio like white background. but it is a shame it got some shake. I like the second photo for its clarity and showing his facial features better but it it is a shame it doesn’t have the white background like the first one. I could do some editing but I generally post unedited photos. I am bit lazy to sit and do any editing.

I have already got a blog name for him. Timmy of Timmy Time

      Hey — Wishes to all 3 of you. It must be exciting for Avni to see the little one. One little one, seeing the other tiny one. Enjoy your sleepless nights. I am still having mine from the first one. And my memory is fresh with what happened in the last 4 months. Good luck and have whatever fun you can.
