    Probably Jebidiah, or Judas. Names that really stick...

    I'd love to name my kids something that means something in terms of Indian Culture and something thats easy for the Western World to pronounce.

    My name's tough, I dont want to give my kids that.

    It its a boy - Rohan is probably my favourite, distinctly Indian, very much Western too
    If its a girl - Tara is probably my favourite. Distinctly Indian, very much Western too.

    There's heaps more names, but thats just at the top of my head

    Maybe John for a boy, and Jane for a girl.

    With Doe as our last name.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    You're a strap, Piper. A big stupid strap. I hate you.

    Anything with a lot of Scandinavian vowels in it.

    Jokes aside...Irene or Marianne for a girl, maybe...Olav or Andreas for a boy, perhaps? Depends on the child, at least. I've heard mum and dad didn't think of my name much until I came out, but then it became obvious.

    Would want it to be fairly pronounceable elsewhere, though.
