Naming A Hindu Child: Why Should We Not Trust The Internet | Nityananda Misra | Sanskrit Hindu Names


So, try the basic well, try checking a dictionary
or go to a scholar who would know Sanskrit. Don’t blindly believe Google. So, this is actual screenshot from 16th of
June for the name Ishanvi. Google Ishanvi for Sanskrit name meaning and
you see the feature snippet which the Google shows which has the wrong meaning, and also
the first result the second and third results, a lot of people do this, they just search
the meaning of name on Google and Google sorts its information from web sites which are popular. Web sites which are popular are usually the
name websites which have a lot of usage-oriented content, which is more of them are not correct,
and Google shows up incorrect results, which are not to be trusted. Next Wikipedia, so the Wikipedia kids are smarter than Google kids, because we believe on Wikipotter Wikipedia. We don’t believe in Google, which is not
higher, so I, but when I say, don’t trust Wikipedia because except for protected article,
Wikipedia can be edited by anybody. This screenshot was taken on 1st of June for
the name, for the Article name Kiara, given name. We have a famous actress by this name already. Look at what it says, Hindi mem ‘Kiara’
meaning god’s precious gift, which is completely wrong. There is no such word in Hindi. In fact the word kayrri, kyaari means people
would know, kyari me pouthe lagathe he, right. So that’s Kyaari not kiara, so this is wrong,
Wikipedia not to be trusted. This happened with me. A parent came to me and said I have named
my daughter Rujula and its the name of Lakshmi and you confirm, if it is true and I said
where did you read it and he said it was on Wikipedia and I said ok, let me check it out
and I looked at Article on Lakshmi for Wikipedia which I believe would get at least few thousand
hits per day, if not a few thousand, at least hundreds. So kiara is although a misleading name, this
is something more misleading because the parents who is apparently a worshiper of Lakshmi,
he want to honor Lakshmi by giving Lakshmi’s name for his daughter is misled by Wikipedia
into thing in that Rujula is one of the name of Lakshmi. Interestingly you see there is a citation
at the end of the sentence, you see the number ‘39’ there I looked the citation I bought
that book and the name was not there in the book, it was the book on hundred and eight name of Lakshami, and Rujula was not there in the book. So this is somebody writing some random content
and people fall in for it, by trusting Wikipedia.
