50 Most Popular Bengali Baby Names With Meanings

17 min read

Like every ceremony in a Hindu household, Bengali naming ceremonies are steeped in culture. Traditionally, Bengali parents perform a ritual called “Annaprashana”, which literally translates to “eating of food”, when naming their children. It takes place six months after birth and marks the first time the child is fed something other than his or her mother’s milk. The little one is also made to choose between a couple of items that are intended to determine their supposed profession when they grow up.

Apart from a normal name, or bhalo naam, the baby is also bestowed a daak naam, or a secret pet name that only their family and close friends know of. It is never to be disclosed to anyone else.

So, if you are looking for some inspiration for a suitable Bengali baby name for your bundle of joy, here is a list of 100 most popular and unique Bengali baby names with meaning:
