Need a Sikh baby name? Let's get started!

1. Take Hukam and get a letter
Naam Karan is the Child Naming Ceremony. At home, you can open up the Guru Granth Sahib to a random page and the first letter of the first word on top of the left page is the letter designated for the child's first name. You may choose a letter by taking online Hukam. What is Hukamnama?

2. Look up names by the letter
Look up names using English or the Gurmukhi alphabets below.

3. What is the difference between Punjabi and Gurmukhi?


English: Nirodh

Gurmukhi: ਨਿਰੋਧੁ

Meaning: restraint
