There are tons of name picking methods and customs just as there are a wide variety of names to choose from. There are endless possibilities in this field. But the most important thing when choosing a baby name for your baby boy or girl is that you go in for the one that appeals to you most.

In the Sikh community, a major determinant in the process of picking a baby’s name is religion. Sikh names are usually selected from the Sikh’s Holy Book, the Guru Granth Sahib.

Tips for picking the best Sikh and Punjabi name for your baby boy. Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing a Sikh or Punjabi baby boy name:

  • You can always pick a name from the scriptures of the Guru Granth Sahib to get a spiritual name for your baby.
  • You can go for a unique name with spiritual meaning for your baby based on the initial letter of random hymns from the Sikh’s holy book.
  • Most of the Sikh names are usually not gender-specific and can be used for boys and girls. For instance, Gurpreet can be a girl’s name as well as a boy’s name. Common names are often differentiated by adding the suffix Singh for boys and the suffix Kaur for girls.
  • It’s best you avoid selecting names that are overly popular and common.
  • For common Punjabi baby boy names, you can go for names whose meanings may relate to traditional masculine livelihoods like war or soldiering.
  • You can also create your own exclusive baby name by combining the common names like Aman, Akal, Fateh, Ek, Deep, with a prefix or suffix. For example, Deepjot, Arshdeep.
  • Make sure that the name you choose or create flows easily and is not difficult to comprehend or pronounce.

The most beautiful gift that any parent can give their child is the gift of a unique and inspiring name that will remain with them for the rest of his life. Some parents, when they hold their bouncing baby boy in their arms for the first time and look down into his lovely face, may naturally get the clarity of the perfect name to christen their little bundle of joy.
