When William Shakespeare wrote "What's in a name? that which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.", he was WRONG!
Apparantly there is a LOT in the name... I mean, if names didn't mean anything, why don't we see more Duryodhanas, Prans (top Bollywood villain of his time), Hitlers, Voldemorts etc. around?
As parents, when we try to choose the perfect name for our child, we give them names which will express their character. And then we hope for the name to start influencing the child's personality.
That is exactly what hubby and I hoped when we named our kids Reya and Rithik...
