"Pranav (835), Nikhil (868), Rishi (932) and Arnav (953) were other Indian names to make the list. Nikhil was first Indian male name to make the SSA list in 1997 and was top-ranked until 2002, when it was edged out by Aditya."Here's a real puzzler:
"The most popular Indian female baby name was Kali (526), followed by Ashanti (696)"Does anyone know any Indian girl named Kali? Or Ashanti? Of course not.
"However, both those names are more common among non Indians than Indians. India is another name uncommon among Indians, but it ranked 501 on the list. It entered the most popular category in 1991 and rose to the top 300 names in 2001"Little "Ranked 501" has the story.
