From Madhubala (मधुबाला) to Ram (राम) and from Bhakti(भक्ति), Aradhna(अराधना) to Upasna(उपासना). In india we love putting names which are meaningful. When a child is born, we do an intense study to look for the best name which can be matched with an infant. Considering my name – Mohit(मोहित) – it means “happiness”, “one who loves spreading happiness”, “love” or “one who attracts or gets attracted”. Personally I believe that a name give you the responsibility to stand for it always. That reminds you of yourself. That’s why at times when I’m sad I try to be happy and at other times if I don’t like someone, I try to suppress that feeling and arise the feeling of love for the same person just to be true to myself, to my Name. For me my name is the biggest thing in this world. Anything which affects my name, affects me, my soul. So that’s why we try to put so meaningful names such that even if anyone just stands right always to his/her name, one can be successful.
But that’s not I was wondering about, yesterday I was thinking about which character or trait or anything else in the name that makes the name suitable for a girl and a boy. I was thinking this throughout yesterday night and went across so many names in my mind so as to know how the names are distinguished between the two sexes.
I selected 20 random names from both the sexes from my Facebook friend list and analysed them.
Here is the name list which I looked upon:
- Sourav Anasuya
- Khushal Mahima
- Udaiveer Jigyasa
- Vishwanath Neha
- Antariksh Ankita
- Vikas Darshika
- Akshay Sirisha
- Tushar Madhuri
- Nitin Aishwarya
- Roop Kaushiki
- Aashish Vani
- Roshan Harshita
- Sushil Shivani
- Venkatraman Apoorva
- Vibhav Mansi
- Prateek Shivranjini
- Shubh Shubhi
- Ishan Ishani
- Deepak Anvi
- Mohit Megha
By analysing I realised that they follow the same pattern (although there are some exceptions).
If the word ends with a sound of letter अ (a) then it is very high chances that the name will be of a male person. Similarly, if the word ends with a sound of letter आ (aa) then it is very high probability that the name belongs to a female sex. Also female names show one more similarity i.e. if the last letter sounds like an ई (ee) then the chances are you are reading a female name. When we want to add ई ee to a consonant we use this symbol ी. For example: Let us take the name Shivranjinee ( शिवरन्जिनी ), the ई ee at the end of the name has been replaced by a symbol ी.
Let us also take a look at the pronunciation of अ (a) and आ (aa).
The letter अ (a) is pronounced as ‘a’, like the sound at the start of the English words – alive, apply, and alert. It makes a very short sound.
The letter आ (aa) is pronounced as ‘aa’, like the sound at the end of the words – Argentina(a), Malaysa(a). It makes a longer sound.
