Hindu baby names are based on the various facets of art and culture of India, including its colorful celebrations, music, dance and the rich, ancient cultural heritage. Birth of a Hindu child is a religious activity and naming him/her is associated with rituals, feasting and social gathering.

The name is selected which inspires the child to follow a path of righteousness and goodness. The names endowed upon the new born babies are usually suggestive of divine qualities of Vedic deities. Family history often comes into play during this process. Many names come from nature, particularly flowers, example Jasmine, rivers such as Kaveri, other landscape features and cosmic patterns.

Hindu baby names are also based on the names of sage and saints, holy persons, deities and incarnation of Hindu gods. According to religious beliefs, repeated addressing of the child by these names inspires stronger faith. Naming according to scriptural procedures is performed four to six months after birth. Usually close relatives and spouses chip in with suggestions.

However, under normal circumstances parents and other close relatives often have numerous backup names prior to the commencement of the naming ritual and selecting the actual one.

The Punjabi baby names for boys are based on warriors while Punjabi baby girl names are mostly divine based on folklore, gods and goddesses.
