Many Indian celebrities are choosing A-names for their babies, according to Priya Pathiyan’s article Meet the New ‘A’ Listers, published January 17 in The Bombay Times.
Names recently used for Indian celebrity babies include: Amartya, Agastya, Aryan, Aiyana, Aira, Arhaan, Ananyashree, Aryaman, Advaitesha and Arin.
I found it interesting that the author concluded the article with observations by a numerologist, who suggested that the letter A has a “positive vibe.” Hm. (Is the numerological value of a baby name very important to most Indian parents? Anyone know?)
