when a child is born, they should be given an auspicious first name which will correspond to the child's Nakshatra. It is claimed that the benefit of this naming is that when the child hears this sound it
generates the feeling of wholeness within the child. The child gains the feeling of comfort 'that mother is
at home', wheras the wrong name can lead to feelings of isolation or alienation. Moon is associated
with mother, so using this sound gives the child that comfort feeling of mother.
Each birthstar has corresponding Sanskrit sounds which would belong at the beginning of such a name.
These are available under each Nakshatra, listed above. The principle technique for deducing the name
is to see which nakshatra the moon is in at the moment of birth; this gives four possible sounds. A
refinement is to pick one sound out of that four that relates to the Pada or division of the Nakshatra.
