Please name my boy

you can read about my history with this naming business here.

Please suggest some boy’s names you like. criteria are simple that, it needs to be short and sweet; Tamil would be good. no zha in it. not fond of sanskrit names but not against it. no shri or ji in it would be good.  That would be it.

Thanks.

    1. Nandhan (i love this name, this was my choice for Nikki veto’d by DH)
    2. Ilan (youthful)
    3. Shravan (name of muruga)
    4. Akhil (will go well with “Avni”, they mean the same)
    5. Kavin (literally means beauty)

    Came here after a long time 🙂 Congrats once again. Hope you have a great time as mum of two.

    Came up with some more names apart from my fav Mugil – Arul, Nidhi, Vel. Actually Adhavan, meaning rising sun, is a nice name. Enna, people will think you pinched it from the movie 😀

    My vote is for Adhavan. The movie sounds rubbish though

    Aadhavan! Love the name. May be it should be Aadavan instead. You sort out the spelling.
    Avni, Aadavan…perfect, Prema!

    I vote for Adhavan, or Aadavan. Or however you choose to spell it!

    Aha, Adhavan is becoming more popular. I am almost under pressure now! 🙂

    One of my main criteria is not having to worry about the spelling and the pronunciation of the name (both by Indians and westerners) shouldn’t be too different from how it should be.

    Adhavan gets pronounced as அதவான் and aadavan as ஆடவான் by westerners, and Adhavan will invite “h” issue from some Indians and Aadavan will generally confuse the Indians or may be pronounced as ஆடவன் (meaning “man”).

    As someone commented, I am going to end up with a single syllable for name!

    Eh! My copyright covers Mugil as well 😛

    How about Abhinav? Not at all Tamil, I agree, but easy to pronounce and spell.
