Names. What are they? Well, pretty much everyone will agree that a name is just a word used permanently to call another person (and no, this is a light-hearted article, so we are not going into the spiritual meaning and all stuff like that, for god’s sake). We all have a name (oh! you have more than one?) Well, no offense, but I am only talking about official names and not the pet ones like Pappu, Bablu, Golu, etc.

Now, for the sake of fun, imagine a world where there were no names. Everyone would call each other saying things like “psst, oye, oh bhaai, arrey sun, hello, excuse me, oh yaar, abbey, aye,” etc. When you think more and more about it, it becomes hilarious as well as confusing.

There would be so much complexity, ambiguity, and perplexity if there were no names. Who knows, one day you are approaching your destination on one fine, sunny day, and someone calls you from behind. Wait! How am I supposed to know that they are calling me and not someone else? Well, that’s where it begins! Everyday life would be a mess and hell, social media… I mean, what will the help centers even do? Give unique codes to people? I don’t know. Maybe people would develop a (better) system for differentiating people, but that’s a topic for some other day.

For now, let’s be thankful for what we have and see.

Here is a list of some beautiful and uncommon names that most of us don’t usually hear:

Names for Girls:

  • Chitralekha: This means something as beautiful as a picture (which is also beautiful, too, of course.)
  • Chayanika: It means the chosen one or, in Assamese, a collection of poems.

  • Snigdha: It stands for anything smooth, soft, or tender.
  • Trishna: It means aspirations, desires, or put, thirst.
  • Arshiya: Divine or heavenly; something or someone who descends from a throne.
