Updated: Feb 21

Of all the things modern would-be parents can stress over – is the $300 bassinet just as good as the cheaper one? Is a wipe warmer really necessary? And what his this contraption that supposedly sucks my infant’s snot out of her nose? – one of the most fret-inducing is choosing a name. It’s the first thing your baby will identify with and it’s something they’ll hold on to forever.


But, no pressure!


If you're looking for an easily-pronounceable yet meaningful names, then peruse the list below of some of the top trending Indian baby names. The list was compiled using two simple methods:
