Hail Aahan

He is Aarohan (to ascend) aka Aahan (dawn). The double A will ensure a roll number one throughout his academic career. A little bundle of happiness. The six month wait was worth the toothless smile he welcomed me with.

It's my Annaprasana and I'm all dressed for the occassion. Bring on the cereal

Lady killer

Thodi masti...

Lookin' at me?

Fingers He is. I'm planning to get blow ups of the pics to adorn my room.

Educatedunemployed Waiting for him to call out my name. But now too we somehow manage a conversation. Just hoping that he understands my baby talk.

Dwaipayan Yes, the little ones are so much fun. I especially like the look on his face when he laughs.

Gypsy Yes.

Adi Yes, their eyes are so clear, they seem to reflect the cleanliness of their hearts.

Aarohan Nice name and also serves another purpose - Roll No. 1 = No waiting.

Aquamarine Waiting for the pics.

Hey Soumyadip - Those are some amazingly cute photos! Total killer! Congrats!

We've just kept our son's name Aahan. I was just've said Aarohan aka Aahan. So is Aahan a short form or pet name?

Also if I can stretch my luck here, do you have an exact root for the word "Aahan"? Right now all I have is dawn/morning.

Thanks so much! And pardon my pushing my envelope here!

Bombay Addict, Aahan is his pet name but not a shortened form. It's complete and deliberately different from the nonsensical pet names that we Bengalis usually have.

As far as I know Aahan means dawn. Haven't got any idea about other meanings. And Aarohan is the official name.

And I'll let my nephew know of his namesake.
