According to my professor, Indian parents believe that a girl who is named Seetha will have a bitter life. I wonder what happens to those with the names you've mentioned.

hmm..interesting..there might be some reasons of people liking such names..a friend of mine told me once that if she is blessed with a baby boy she will name her boy as "Vandiyadevan" eventhough its a very old name, she got admired by that character.

Vm, about 'Seetha' name, ya I have heard about it. In fact, there is a 1990 movie with the same name in which the protagonist suffers a lot at her marital home.
