Naming a human being is the most important event in that person's life as it is this name that will help mould his/her  future. It is also  the only thing that remains once a person is dead. 

A name is the best gift parents could give their children. 

If parents believe in naming the child as they wish, they should not give names  that have bad meanings. For example, Viranga (which means the male sex organs) or Ayoni (which means women without a reproductive system).

When Giving a name to a new born child you need to find the auspicious sounding starting letters for the name. It is believed when such an auspicious sounding name is constantly repeated over the years to come, it will act as a "Manthra" which will bring good luck for the child.

There are three ways of finding letters. The crudest way is according to the Day, It is like giving the name "Chandra" to all the babies born on Mondays.

For the second and third methods you need to cast the horoscope of the child and find out the "Lagna" (Rising Sign) and the "Janma Nakshtra" (Position of the Moon) of the child from the horoscope.

The letters compatible with the "Lagna" are considered the best. Then the second best are the letters the letters according to "Janma Nakshtra". The third preference is the letters according to the Day.

Step by step guide  
ow to find letters for the naming of a new  born baby.

Over the past period many people from various countries had contacted me asking help on finding letters suitable for new born babies. Some countries impose strict time frames over the registration of births. Because of that, the letters had to be found as soon as possible. (It  is amazing to know how keen some people are in finding suitable letters for names even for their pet animals. Once, I was contacted by the staff members of an American zoo, asking for auspicious letters, suitable for the naming of a new born baby elephant according to it's time of birth. Which, I first thought is a joke. But found out that they were very serious about it. !)  

Therefore, I thought that it is a good idea to provide in this page, using the already available resources in this site, a step by step guide how to find suitable letters for naming a new born child, in line with the genuine Vedic astrological principles, with out having to consult myself or any other astrologer. 

Step 1: 

We need to find out the Lagna. 

Please click here to visit the page  Follow the instructions there carefully regarding, how to find and then enter the geographic coordinates of the place of birth, Date, time zone and Daylight saving time information. Press the calculate button. The page will then calculate the Lagna and a one page reading will appear on the screen. On the very top of the reading,  Lagna or the Birth Sign will be given. (See the Picture below).

Now, without having to use any  Ephemeris and without casting the horoscope, You have calculated the Lagna of the Baby. Use the following table to find the suitable letters according to the Lagna.



Aries (Mesha) A (a, as in arise), Aa (Aa, as in Arnold), Sha (Sha, as in shape)
Taurus (Vrushaba) E ( as in Engine ex. Ingrid), Ee (as in East) Uu (as in Oum) Sha (as in shut ex. Shane) 
Gemini (Mithuna) Uu (Uu as in Usha), Sa (Sa as in Sun)
Cancer (Kataka) Ga (as in Garfield) Ea (as in Edna) S ( as in Samantha)
Simha  (Leo) O (as in Oliver) La (as in Lyle)
Virgo (Kanya) A (A as in Ann or Anjala)
Libra (Tula) Ka (Ca as in Carl), Ga (Ga as in Galina) Da (Da as in Dudly)
Scorpio (Vurshika) Cha (as in Charls) Jha (as in John) Jha (as in Justin)
Sagittarius (Dhanu) Ta (as in Tom) Dha (as in Dunstan) Nha (as in Nina)
Capricorn (Makara) Tha (as Thamara) Dha (as in Dharma) Na (na as in Natasha)
Aquarius (Kumbha) Pha (as in Phalitha) Bha (Bill) Ma (Margret)
Pisces (Meena) Ya (as in Yankee) Ra (as in Ramon) La (as in Lara) Va (Valya)

Suppose you do not like the letters you got there or you can not find a suitable name in line with the letters you got. then you need to get the second  set of letters.

Here is how to do it:

Step 2:

Click here to visit the page Enter the birth details again and press calculate button.

On the left bottom, a new yellow coloured result form will appear:  (See the picture below). Find the "Janma Nakshtra" from it
