SYMPATHIES

I used to think that KUNJARANI and KUSUMA were the most embarassing names to have.

Today a Bengali friend tells me about the existence of the name PORNIKA. My sympathies to the poor kid.

We had a girl named adorable in the office and her sisters' names were comfortable and sweet adorable - i thought that was funny - the names you have listed .. aiio paavam

Ravi said...

Vinesh, probably only in Tamil the names seem funny and so am sure no one would coin such names here ;-) Anyway, what's in a name? I am sure Vinesh you like/dislike people for what they are more than how they are called. The fun (on their names) may last only during the initial days of knowing them.

Vinesh said...

@Paavai: Adorable, comfortable? HAHAHAHAHA! This sounds like the premise for a joke..

Stranger: Are you adorable?
Adorable: Yea, very! :-D

@Ravi: Of course Ravi, names are skin deep :-) But when double meaning names can be made from ANY name, Pornika is like handing it on a platter! :-) All in good fun only !

For people who move abroad, this naming kids is becoming as stressful as the pregnancy itself! Beautiful Indian names like 'gopi', 'dikshit' are so embrassing in English speaking countries!
