How my baby got his name?

Many Indian households follow certain rituals and traditions when a baby is born. Among such rituals like chhati, annaprashan, mundan, etc, naming ceremony of a baby is also celebrated in many parts of India. In order to give a name to the baby, there is a special celebration. People even keep names starting with specific letters on the basis of birth time and stars of the baby.

In our case, we named our kids not on the basis of a specific letter or a star or hold any such celebrations. We simply selected a few names as per the trend and gathered the meaning of these names. Before my second child was born, we were going through a difficult time. When I was expecting my second child, I had a strong feeling that I would have a baby girl (as I wanted a girl, ‘ghar ki laxmi’). But, God had a different plan and I was blessed with two boys.

Among many names shortlisted, Vaibhavi was one of the names (to celebrate the arrival of ghar ki laxmi). As I had a baby boy, we named him Vaibhav. Vaibhav means wealth. When I received the personalized Baby Dove nourishing baby lotion bottle with Vaibhav written over it, it felt really special. It gave a personal touch to that bottle of baby lotion. Now, it is a part of our memory bank and I am so thankful for that.

Affectionately we call him Bobo, Vaibo, Vibhu and Vaibhu. Now Vaibhav also knows his name and if we ask him, “Who has done this?” He will reply, “Bobo”

Needless to say, Vaibhav is thrilled to have a personalised product as well!
