Naming As Per Astrology

Names from Sri Vishnu Sahasra Namam given at the end of this page.

by TRS Iyengar

What is in a name ? Any person may be wondering. In order to carry on the social, cultural and business activities, we need an identity. But the ancestors tried to make this identity purposeful unlike the present situation. The name was given to enable attaining fame! The naming of a new born therefore has significance and the SamSkAram is known as nAmakaraNam (in fact the English word ‘Name’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘nAma’)! Either the name was after a God/Goddess, or that of a Rishi, that protects the child, uttering whose name benefits those who utter or that of a sage or saint to turn it as famous as that person as well as getting blessed. Besides, there were practices to name with secular motive, use names of the elders, secret names to maintain personality and to withhold them from enemies, family names for remembrance and pride etc. During the naming ceremony amongst the Brahmins, they used to give three different names or more, one from their paternal elders, another from the maternal side and the third is that of their family diety (kula Devatha).But according to Vedic Sastra, a persons name and the pronunciation is likely to influence much of a  character and growth. The vibrations caused by calling frequently a person with his/her name, is surely linked to one’s mind and thoughts. If a persons name influences a negative factor, the person is most likely to be down with inferiority complexion. Likewise, if a persons name that sounds something like hero or God, then the named persons behavioral pattern is much better than one can expect.  That’s why, in those days, people used to name their child after their Family Deity (Kula Devatha) or one or other God’s Name. So that. by frequently calling the child with that specific name. the phonetic vibrations increases the level of relationship between the caller & the called one! So, please name your baby with most suitable words, that will grow in a positive way with the child. Given below are the stars and suitable  first two or three letters of alphabet as starting name and you can find full name based on these guidance. This is according to Indian Astrological pattern, which you can find in any Almanac known as Panchang Or Panchangam. The most significance & effect is definitely felt by experience. Each  Nakshatram (Nakshatra or Star) is divided into 4 parts and each quarter known as Charan or Padam. The representing Alphabet for each quarter or Padam is given hereunder :

** Abijit (Abhijeet) Nakshatra is an existing constellation (Star – Nakshatra) in the stellar system. But the same is said to have been de-activated by the Lord Sri Maha Vishnu 

during after the Mahabharatha War. However, persons born after four hours of Uthrashada (Uthiradam) nakshatra are said to be part of this Abhijt (Abijeet) nakshatram.

It is considered that Last part or end of 4th quarter in Uthirashada and two hours in the first part of of 1st Charan or Quarter of Shravan are considered as Abhijeet Nakshatram.
