Names with Dark Meaning

Over the years, people have started taking interest in giving unique names to their babies. These days, parents ponder deeply while naming their baby and even consider names from other cultures too. If they like the sound of it and love the meaning behind it, then they don’t hesitate naming their child after that.

Now parents don’t like to give common names to their children, or names of their favorite actor/actresses, personality or their role model. Because they know, no matter what name you assign to your child. Your child won’t imbibe that person’s qualities rather he will develop his own unique personality.

A rose would smell sweet even if was named gutter because, it won’t lose its quality, no matter we call it by.
