What’s in my name ??

Karthik being my name, I have often wondered what is in my name? It is a name that is very common and is also the name of Lord Muruga. But were they the reasons why my parents christened me Karthik? Or was there any other significance attached to my name? I asked my dad.

SANKAR – my dad’s name.
SHANTHI – my mom’s name.

The last three letters from both names, when concatenated, gives KARTHI. And thus my name was formed - a part of both my parents’ names!!!

Nice concept, right?? Probably I must pass on the legacy too, somehow…
