Traditional Hindu Baby Names : Classic names are back in demand. Many young parents are turning back time and naming their children based on traditions, scriptures, vedas, mythology and more.

Classic names, some of which are short, are named after gods. Ram, Shiva, Shanker, Indra and others are very popular once again. When it comes to keeping our children’s names, we spend a lot of time looking for that ideal one. With so many special names everywhere, we all want our child’s name to be unique, lovely, have meaning and be relevant. At the time time we don’t want it to be funny or too long so that people spoil it or distort it.
