Even this challenging situation would ease
A person's name is given about what his parents aspire about him. His surname is inherited from his father. But people have different languages to communicate.
The "religious" names aren't actually showing any religion at all.
"Aditya" means - God who was born first/ sun. So is it a Hindu name? I don't think so. It's a Sanskrit word.
"Khorshid" . Sounds like a Muslim name right? But it means Sun in Persian.
So what am I ? Hindu or Muslim? It's just me described in two different languages.
Names don't showcase religion but the native language of the person.
So I don't think we need to stop any kind of naming procedures. So what is a person has a name "Arjun John"? We already understand he's half Hindu and half Christian right.
Religion, names and Gods; were all made by humans. They don't exist in Nature.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Why should anything be done to "avoid" it? Each individual should be proud of his/her identity, irrespective of the inter-religious marriage of the parents and be happy to say so if anybody does ask about an unusual name. Why bother about what others think? In any case, now a days with most people having open minds, if anybody does ask about an unusual combination of a name, it will likely be only out of mere curiosity. In the case of a young child who is teased, I think parents can take steps to explain to the child how to deal with it.
Keep smiling...one day life will get tired of upsetting you.
Sahil ( hindus as well as muslim), kuldeep( sikhs as well as hindus) many people might misunderstand relegion of these peoples it is because we think that way.
We try to identify a person's religion and other things about him by just knowing his name so its nothing to do with the way we name someone but with the way we see that persons name and our trying to preasume more things about that person by just name.
