Tulsi Gabbard, Congresswoman-elect for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, will be the first Hindu-American in U.S. Congress.

Heath and Deborah Campbell of Pennsylvania are upset that a ShopRite supermarket would not sell them a birthday cake with their 3-year-old son’s full name on it.
The name? Adolf Hilter Campbell.
The family did ultimately buy a (satisfactorily decorated) cake from a Wal-Mart, and the birthday party was held two days ago.
Heath said he chose the name Adolf Hitler for his son because he liked it and because “no one else in the world would have that name.”
The couple’s other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.

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?)
