BIRTH SIGNS AND NAMES

In the Indian system, a birth sign is determined by the placement of the moon at the time of birth rather than the position of sun, as in the Western system. Among certain communities, each birth sign (rashi) is assigned a group of letters of the Devnagri alphabet. It is considered appropriate and auspicious for the child to be given a name beginning with one of these alphabets.
