In India, it’s an age old custom to name children after famous film personalities, celestial objects, and even Gods; I’ve lost count of how many Shivas, Krishnas, Rams, or Surajs I have known in my life.
With the Internet becoming an integral part of our lives, do our future generations get to be named after popular website or service? This might sound strange,but it’s already happening.
Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspiration has named his son Google. I think Amit would have done this because he expects his son to epitomize Google. I really don’t know, and it really doesn’t matter, the kid is Amit’s son and he has every right to name his son whatever he wants. His son isn’t going to mind either.
Personally, I for one would not like to name my kid after something (Google) that doesn’t have any physical form!
