List of 200+ Indian baby boys names

One of the hardest parts of parenting/pregnancy is naming your child. Especially when you’re a pro-active mom like us, you want your baby’s name to be one of the popular ones and not be outdated. Finding unique Indian boy names can be daunting.  After all, how many Arjuns do you know and how many Karans can your phonebook hold? Modern baby boy names aren’t hard to find and even though, we’re sure you’ve shortlisted some of your favorites, we thought we should do our bit and help you out with a cool version of our own. So we came up with this unique Indian baby boys names  2020!

 

Now, the list is self-explanatory and quite exhaustive, it in no way is an indication of our choice/preference. Also, we have tried to be religion-neutral so there’s no bias of any sorts. Further, we recommend finding out the meaning of each of these names and then shortlist them for your use. Some may mean different in different languages, but cool short Indian baby boys names should be chosen as per the popular opinion.

 

We also recommend that you choose the first letter with some thought, it could be the same as you/your spouse, an addition to the two initial letters to make a cool work (Like ASK – Akhil, Sushma and Kshitij – obviously Kshitij is the Indian baby boys names ) etc. Give it a go and keep exploring!
