Authentic Popular Indian Baby Names

You may have been trying to find popular names on baby name finders available on the Internet. There are several names like Pooja, Rahul, Rohan, and Priyanka that have been very popular over the years. The benefit of giving your child a popular name is that it is usually easier to spell and pronounce.

Many celebrities have often changed their names so that it is easier to pronounce and remember. Common or popular names are great because your child will not spend his entire life correcting mispronunciations and misspellings of his name.

There may be some who say that giving common names causes confusion. But most children have different surnames and eventually grow up embracing nicknames that help differentiate them from other kids with similar names.

A few new names that have become increasingly popular in the list of Indian names are as follows:

  • Aisha

  • Rehan
