Hi all, My wife is 33 weeks and we are from India. We will be having a baby girl in September and are struggling with choosing a name. Primarily, the problem lies in the fact that we are trying to choose an Indian name that won't be made fun of by other kids in school. We are hearing different and varied opinions on the names we have chosen and that's when I thought maybe you guys are the best people to talk to. You see students very closely from their childhood to their youth and therefore I am seeking help from you. I just want to ensure that we don't make a bad decision for our baby who then has to live with the name all her life. I hope that this thread does not break any forum rules. The names that we have come up with are below: 1. Prisha (pronounced as Trisha with a P) 2. Anushka (pronounced Ah-noo-sh-kah) 3. Anusha (Pronounced as Ah-noo-sh-ah) 4. Karina Our family last name is Jain. So my baby will have one of the above as her first name and then my name (Viral) as her middle name and Jain as her last name. Please let me know what you guys think is the best (safest) name to choose in terms of ease of pronounciation and least chance of being made fun of by kids in elementary and maybe even in secondary school. Seeking help from teachers teaching in United States. Also in your reply - please mention what grade you teach. Thanks much in advance!
