If you too are having a tough time deciding on what to name your baby girl, here are 10 unique names of Bollywood star daughters and what they mean.

What’s in a name! Well about everything! A name is not something by which your friends or parents call you. In fact it is your identity and something that people remember you by.

New parents are always in a fix when it comes to naming their baby, whether a boy or a girl. While every parent wants to have a unique and lucky name for his baby, some Bollywood celebs have taken an extra step and given their baby girls some extraordinary names that have even better meanings.

If you too are having a tough time deciding on what to name your baby girl, here are 10 unique baby girl names of Bollywood stars and what they mean:

1. Aaradhya Bachchan

Aaradhya became perhaps the most popular star kid even before she turned one and naming her took a lot of time. The media and fans had to wait for a month after her birth (November 15, 2011) when the the family patriarch Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to announce the name of his grand daughter as “Aaradhya”.

Aaradhya means one who is worshipped and finds its origin in sanskrit. So if you want a traditional name for girl, this is the name you should go for.

2. Adira Chopra

Rani Mukherji and Aditiya Chopra have named their daughter Adira, which they formed from their initials Adi and Ra. However, Adira also finds origin in Greek and it means “strong” in that language. Adira was born in December 2015.

3. Ziva Dhoni

India’s most favourite cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni named his daughter Ziva. Ziva was born in Feb 2015.
