As you know we was blessed with baby boy on 15-Mar-2010. We have selected the name Aryan for him. The process of selecting name was very interesting. We had short-listed nearly 100 names for him and out of all these names, we finally decided on this name. The term Aryan originates from the Sanskrit word arya, attested in the ancient texts of Hinduism such as the Rigveda. Arya in Sanskrit holds the meaning noble, civilized or simply referring to an individual of higher consciousness..

What History Says About Aryan

Aryan is an English language loanword denoting variously

  • in historical or dated usage,
    • the Indo-Iranian languages and their speakers, viz. the Iranian and Indo-Aryan peoples, collectively known as the Indo-Iranians
    • the Indo-European languages more generally and their speakers,
  • in contemporary usage,
    • Among the Hindu/Indian nationalists, the Hindu/Indian people (Aryan derives from the Sanskrit word Arya)
    • in colloquial English by Nazi racism, persons corresponding to the "Nordic", "blond-haired, blue-eyed" physical ideal of Nazi Germany within US white supremacy, the "white race".

The "Aryan race" taken to correspond to the original speakers of Indo-European languages and their present day descendants.
As an adaptation of the Latin Arianus, referring to Iran, ‘Arya’ has "long been in English language use". Its history as a loan word began in the late 1700s, when the word was borrowed from Sanskrit a´rya- to refer to speakers of North Indian languages.. When it was determined that Iranian languages — both living and ancient — used a similar term in much the same way (but in the Iranian context as a self-identifier of Iranian peoples), it became apparent that the shared meaning had to derive from the ancestor language of the shared past, and so, by the early 1800s, the word ‘Arya’ came to refer to the group of languages deriving from that ancestor language, and by extension, the speakers of those languages.

Reason for Deciding Aryan as His Name

My Daughter, Diya with my son, Aryan
Diya and Aryan

The main reason for deciding Aryan as his name is that We are Kambojas, a representative of Indo-Aryans. We are an ethnic community of the Punjab region. We are the modern representatives of ancient Kambojas, a well known Kshatriya tribe of Indo-Aryans of Iron Age India, said to have Indian as well as Iranian affinities. In fact, we are stated to be the ancient inhabitants of Persia. 

The second major decision for deciding Aryan as his name was having common alphabets ‘A’ and ‘Y’ in names of kids of our family: ANANYA, YASH, DIYA and ADITYA and now ARYAN.

I have received many suggestions for his name and had created a big pool of baby names. This name was selected by us considering its meaning and also importance of this baby in our life.  I would like to know if you all liked my son’s name.
