Saumya told Hindustan Times, ““Though, the name suggested by a lady from Singapore was Miran, it was a girl’s name so I added an extra ‘a’ to it. It’s a Persian word and means king of kings. Finally, we registered the name as Miraan Tandon Singh. Many suggested Shaurya as well which is a combination of my name and my husband’s name Saurabh. But I wanted a unique name so Miraan it is.” She will also be sending a personalised gift to the lady who suggested the name.

Saumya had earlier held a baby naming contest on social media where many users came forward and suggested names for her son. Talking about the same, she told HT, “Honestly, I didn’t think of having a contest on social media but it so happened that when my son was born, my husband and I were not prepared for the delivery. After a check-up, the doctor said that I had to be admitted immediately. Later, when I shared the news about the birth of my baby, everyone was asking about the name. And my reply was, ‘why don’t you suggest a name?’”. Also Read - Kareena Kapoor Khan, Son Taimur Ali Khan Try Their Hands on Pottery as They Vacay in Dharamshala | See Pics

Need your best wishes throughout.”
