A-Names Make the A-List in Bombay

Many Indian celebrities are choosing baby names that feature the letter A, according a recent article in The Bombay Times.

For instance, A-names recently used for Indian celebrity babies include:

  • Amartya & Agastya (twin sons of Haseena and Mahesh Jethmalani)
  • Aryan (son of Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan)
  • Aiyana (daughter of Leander Paes and Rhea Pillai)
  • Arhaan (son of Malaika and Arbaaz Khan)
  • Ananyashree, Aryaman & Advaitesha (kids of Neerja and Kumar Mangalam Birla)
  • Arin (son of Madhuri Dixit Nene)

But not everyone is on board with the A-trend. Here’s what one schoolteacher had to say about it:

Today it’s difficult to call out to the kids. Every name is so similar sounding! For example, in my current batch, I have three Aryaans, an Arhan, a Rehaan, two Vedaants, a Reya, a Freya, an Aashna and an Ishnaa!
