Creativity in naming babies

During Amma’s recent program in Kannur, a family brought their baby for the Annaprasha ceremony, where Amma gives the child its first solid food. The father explained to Amma that his first child’s name is Amrit, the second child’s name is Ananda and the third and youngest one which was participating in the ceremony is Mayi. Put it all together and it becomes: AmritAnandaMayi. Amma had a good laugh at the creativity and devotion of the parents.
