English Baby Names – 400+ Unique Names for Baby Girls and Boys

Name your Child, Take your First Step towards Parenthood

Becoming a parent is a proud moment that also brings a lot of responsibilities and giving a good and meaningful name to the child is the first and foremost responsibility. Choosing the right name for your baby is exciting as well as challenging, as a name not only gives an identity to the child but remains the most significant aspect for the child for the rest of his or her life. Indian diversity and internal heterogeneity are such that nothing here can be claimed to be common for the entire country. Right from food, language, caste, festivals, dances and baby names, almost everything varies from region to region. Certain baby names can be popular in a specific area and completely unknown in another region, so basically people select names depending upon their choice as well as their place of origin. Nowadays it has been observed that all first-time parents are showing their keen interest in naming their child with English or western names.

Give a Good and Meaningful Name to your Child

With names having the power to shape a behaviour, personality, and destiny, all new parents need to be conscious and careful while naming their little bundle of joy. It is a fact that choosing the right name for the baby is important because a name balanced with a surname and date-of-birth can do wonders for them. However, the most popular trends among Indian parents have been to choose a western or English name. English baby names are quite a hit among the current generation of parents, who wish to name their new-born with a latest and stylish name that is not so common in India. Traditional names are simply out-of-trend, as parents are quite keen to name their new-born with trendy and modern names that have a deep and good meaning.
