Baby girls name -Thurren

Recommended Posts

Guest Craig

Hi all,

was hoping for ur help, we were on holiday and met a Sikh couple who had a little girl called 'thurren'. We love the name and r considering it for our own baby. Think I'm spelling it wrongly as we can't ding any trace of it. Is this a name any of u have heard of? Thanks in advance 😀

Yes I think some ppl in America have named their kids taran but pronounce it "tear-in" the Sikh pronounciation would be "trr-un"

Guest another idea

Hi Craig, yes the name is definitely the one usually spelt Taran in the west but actually pronounced as you wrote it "thurr-run".

Another idea for your daughter could be to give her the middle name Kaur (which means princess). Many inspiring stories of female heroes with that name such as Mata Gujjar Kaur and Mata Bhag Kaur.

I would go with 'Simran'

Just incase someone pronounces a name like this:

"Tara-aaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaa-n-jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit"

(I wonder over all my non-punjabi teachers)

Yea lol I've had some weird and wonderful pronunciations of my name before especially from supply teachers! lmao...

Simran is a nice name but its really common. My baba made sure that me and my siblings got quite unique names: Prabhmeet is my brothers name..

The weirdest I've ever had my name said before is: Taaronjot.

Names are meant to be unique in my opinion. A rather unique name I have heard in a while is "Gurbhagat".

That's why some people say not to shorten names to nicknames. The name will lose it's value.

The worst part is when you have been correcting them for a year or more after they read your name in the register and they got it wrong all the time.

"It will come to me next time!".

Some mutually exclusive cultures, pride themselves on their ignorance unfortunately.

    • Most of the postmen and delivery drivers in london are muslims. It seems a particular type of inhumane evil minded muslims who are determined to spread coronavirus plague. The only thing people can do is make sure they do not open their post until a few days receiving it and/or sanitizing it with anti-bacterial products.
    • "Get Brexit done" , "whatever it takes ", "Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives”...it's the power of 3. Basically the likes of Cummings and his team  who actually come up with the words that politicians (the faces) say, know that the most the thick plebs remember is 3 word slogans or 3 slogans made of three words (Stay at home, protect the NHS, and save lives”).. then you repeat repeat..
    • How's everyone holding up with the lockdown? I worry for folks who have never had to spend extended periods of time in one place. It's a real shock to the system. I suggest keeping your mind active as much as possible with things that don't involve worrying and watching the news, lol. If you've got a backyard, sit outside for a while, breathe in the fresh air, listen to nature, etc. Don't stay couped up inside, especially since the weather's warming up in the UK at least. Keep yourself active within the walls of your home as much as possible. Listen to Gurbani or Kirtan. You may not believe it, but it works in ways that affect us on certain frequencies that gives us peace and contentment when done regularly. 
    • All these modern deras are set up by the government too    I dnt understand what the government gets out of these deras though?  These deras are super powerful.   Beas wala dera is very popular in doaba and peoples have donated miles and miles and miles of land to the dera        government must get some money out of these places? And in return the deras maybe promote the party and get the party votes?    The amount of land these deras have is mad  
    • Why did the congress create nirankaris/gurbachan? What was the actual motive was religious or political?  I dont think taksalis were considered a threat at that point by the congress? Not until 1978?  But obviously because of the punjabi subha movement and everything else the Congress had realised that sikhs aren't the sort to settle down and be quite with whatever rubbish is thrown at them.    Was gurbachan nirankari sent as a distraction, or a way to alter sikhi. Iv read his deras had a lot of drugs and sex.  And iv read the akalis and sgpc just sat there quite and didnt say anything.  The modern day deras are like left overs of the nirankaris.
