Today’s #5SmartReads Regular Contributor is Sonal! Take a look at her blog, Dear Girls Love Mom, “love letters to my daughters.” Find out more about Sonal here. See below for the unique history of her name!
Q: Name pronunciation + any back story?
A: My name is pronounced So-null- although my husband says my parents say it in a very unique way. I'll let it stay special to them. I was named based on Janam Nakshatranam which is the hindu naming ritual based on vedic astrology. It is how the first letter of my name was selected. Fun fact- my mom was in between Sonal or Swati. Sonal obviously won.
