  • Description

    The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names For Boys is an exhaustive compilation reached through years of research, which contains all possible Hindu names for boys.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names For Boys is the result of several years’ worth of research into the subject by the author. It contains detailed etymology explanations, speaking of the sources of each word as well as its meaning. It is an ideal way to learn the meanings of many familiar as well as unfamiliar Hindu names.

    The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names became very popular, selling more than fifty thousand copies. This is the first time that the book has been divided into two volumes, one for boys and another for girls. This makes the list far more convenient to peruse. A great feature of this book is that modern boys’ names are included, so that parents can take their time and choose the best name for their son.

    The meanings of more than twenty thousand words are discussed at length in this book, and even the usages of these words are provided. Hindu Names for Boys is a comprehensive list for the anxious parent.

    The Penguin Book Of Hindu Names For Boys has been written primarily with two purposes in mind. The first, of course, is to attempt to create a list that encompasses all possible names that a Hindu parent may want for his or her son. The second is to provide a sort of guide for laymen and scholars alike, to many known and unknown names, so they can find out for themselves what these words really mean.

    Overrated and thoughtlessly compiled

    This long (425 page) but thoughtless compilation is not very useful. Sanskrit words have been taken without discrimination or sensibility from various sources and several names are not usable (eg. page 172 includes Kokila- Indian cuckoo, Kola- hog, Kolahala- loud noise, Kopavega- impetuousity of passion, Kotavi- naked woman). Filtering through many of these words wastes a lot of time and concentration. Look for other sources of names especially online.

    Quite a good number of names but not exhaustive

    Book does contain plenty of names with meaning but list is not exhaustive. There are many more names available online now a days.
