Some Factors for Lucky Name for Baby: Nakshatra & Rashi. Rashi and Nakshatra are important fundamentals of Vedic astrology. They are also an important part of Hinduism and each rashi is associated with a powerful deity. There are syllables and sounds that are associated with the deities and these will factor in when it comes to choosing a name for a baby based on his or her rashi (moon sign).

Believers in astrology say that nakshatra of your baby can give you an insight into her personality and help you select the best name for your newborn. Thats’ the reason many Indian parents seek guidance of a astrologer or numerologist to find out nakshatra (birthstar) and rashi (moon sign) of the baby soon after birth.

Advantages of Naming by Rashi

Naming children by rashi acts as an indication to their time of birth, an important fact that is crucial in determining marriages and engagements. Think of it as a summary of the kundali, where the syllables of the name help trace the birth time, which is then studied further to understand if the individual is auspiciously aligned to a proposed relationship.

Nakshatras and Rashi

The 360 degrees of the zodiac are divided into 27 Nakshatras, a concept created by astrologers to enable accurate analysis. These Nakshatras were further divided into 4 parts or padas and each pada was allotted one specific letter. So the total of 108 padas could be directly associated with the 12 rashis of the zodiac.

In ancient times, there was a practical application for naming according to rashis. Names were like an identity card, reflecting the personas associated with each birth period. This practice lives on in modern times, as relevant to Hindu society as ever.

Much More to Your Horoscope

Your horoscope is a large platform of possibilities, giving you clues as to how your life’s journey will be if you are careful enough to notice them. Imagine the beginning of a child’s journey, when something as simple as a name can channel the energies of his or her rashi, providing a good direction as life progresses. When you wish name a child, it is always good to know the basics of naming according to rashi.

How to Choose Names

There are many charts that depict the relationship between certain syllables and letters with the rashis. There are many personality traits associated with people born of a specific rashi. Syllables or beeja aksharas are associated with certain deities – the belief is that when a person is called by the appropriate name, the sound creates an aura of positive energy that counters any negative vibes. Some of the common sounds associated with the twelve rashis are listed below.

Syllables and Signs

L and A are the anglicized representations of what is considered good luck letters or sounds for a child who is born under the Aries or Mesh Rashi while B, V, U and V are considered auspicious for those born under the Taurus, or Vrishabha Rashi. If the child has a Gemini or Mithun rashi, then names starting with K, CH and C sounds are considered a good conduit for positive vibes, those born under Karka or Cancer are suggested to have names beginning with DD or H.

Before we continue with examples for the remaining rashis, remember that there are plenty of names for boys and girls to choose one but you will only have one chance. Boys and girls with the Singha rashi, or Leo may have names beginning with M or TT sounds while children born under Virgo or Kanya Rashi are suggested names with P or TH. Libra or Tula babies are recommended R and T names while some of the letters allotted to the padas of Vrishchik or Scorpio include N and Y. Names starting with BH and F are associated with the Dhanu rashi and KH and J with Makar or Capricorn. G, S and Sh are some of the syllables allotted to the Kumbha or Aquarius rashi, while D and Z are some examples of letters allotted to Meena or Pisces.
