Babies are a breeze of fresh air. More like the spring days which makes you all joyful. Keeping the names of your babies according to astrology fetches them abundance of luck and fortune. When we use Vedic Astrology to name the babies, we tend to consider their planetary positions of their natal chart.

Names and their sounds can spark some remarkable vibes and energies, both in the life of the babies as well as their families. They should be a source of positivity and should be related to the growth of the person they are being given to. As all the letters and sounds are different, they energize and activate different planets and their positions. Hence, the names of the babies which are kept on the basis of their birth dates are known to be the perfect picks.

What does Sun/Moon/Ascendant Represent?

As soon as the babies arrive, they enter the cosmic world with their own distinct souls as well as their fates. The names of the babies denote their alignment with the universe. The importance of naming the baby is explained through a bona fide ritual in the field of astrology, so that it resonates with the vibes of the cosmic world and make way into an abode of joy and flourishing energy.

We all know and have heard from people that on Diwali, the festival of lights, Goddess Laxmi comes and blesses us. Similarly, keeping a good name is believed to bring in good luck (Laxmi) and fortune. And keeping a bad name is mostly referred to as giving an invitation to challenges (Alaxmi) and struggles in one’s own life. At the time of birth, when the soul enters your body, the position of the moon is noted and is called your Rashi/ Moon sign. The Moon is known to signify your inner emotions, mind, desires, subconscious patterns, and some shady and quiet side of yourself.

Ascendant/Lagna refers to your outer personality which acts like a shield to protect us from the outer world. Astrology helps in knowing our behavior and habitual patterns according to the phases of the moon. The Sun, on the other hand, exhibits our spirit, identity, life force, vital energy and our inner core personality.

Using Vedic Astrology to name your baby:

The moon sign of the baby (Rashi), its birth star (Nakshatra), position of the Jupiter, and the lucky life number are taken into consideration for naming the baby. Numerology is another aspect which holds equal importance in naming the baby on the basis of its date of birth.

Phonetics or the sounds of the alphabets provides strength to each birth star which in turn gives the strength to the baby, who is born under that specific star. Each birth star has its own set of distinct set of letters and vowels which makes all of them auspicious.

What Does Baby Name Signifies?

The whole name of your baby would not be defined by astrology as it only provides you with the initials or the sound of the same. This sounds varies from people to people and works similarly, in the case of Rashis. The Moon Rashi is split into 27 Nakshatras and 4 Padas which are behind the Moon. As it is widely believed, the cosmos is made up of OM sound and thus, each one of us have their own sound on the basis of our Moon Rashi.

If the initial sound or swar for the Leo sign is M, MI, MU, ME or MO, then we can relate the name of the baby having the qualities of a Leo. Leos are usually rulers and leaders. So, you might like to watch out before hurting their ego and pride. For example, letter ‘K’ is usually referred to a Gemini, who have flickering mindsets and dual characters. They also like freedom and are mostly depressed. Likewise, the Sun is known to be the king of the solar system and holds certain sounds/letters.
