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 ūüėÄ

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.

All the best

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.

    • I think showing vulnerability can be problematic because it is seen as a weakness.¬† Showing vulnerability is a largely a female trait because women emote more as it is part of their make up. It does not work the same for men because we tend to prioritise being rational and our nature is to solve problems.¬† But if you need help there are people that can help you.
    • I totally agree with above quote. ¬† There is nothing wrong with the program listed. It is normal to see Amrit sanchar programs¬†in various jathabandis. Using same argument method, tomorrow Someone will be saying.. it is not ok for¬†taksal jathabandi to stamp on santhiyaa programs.¬† ¬† Rather than finding mistakes in any jathbandees, we need to work together for panth‚Äôs benefits¬†despite of having few differences.¬†
    • Dharam seems like more of a verb to me. Like truth in action.¬† It's one thing to believe exercise makes you fit it's another thing to actually train and get the benefit.¬†
    • well I wouldn't know. Nor am I amritdhari nor am I married. But I would expect that love and lust are two different things even when it comes to physical human relationship. Right? Or maybe both persons in relationship have to be at a high level to differentiate between lust and love and act accordingly.?¬† and if we are on this topic, ¬†is it not lust to use a natural mechanism, that is meant for procreation,¬†to get the pleasure, and at the end simply pull out (sorry for being explicit). Is there a difference between making love and fu**ing?¬†
