Aishwarya Rai's baby girl: 'A' name has been decided


It has been weeks since the birth of Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan's baby daughter. However, the mystery behind the much-delayed official naming ceremony of 'Beti B' continues to create a buzz among the Bollywood fans.

Family friends have revealed that Amitabh Bachchan's grand daughter's name is likely to start with double ‘A' and could well be short and sweet.

If the insiders are to be believed, the much-superstitious Bachchan family is waiting for the inauspicious period (according to the Hindu calendar) to get over by January 14 before holding the naming ceremony on January 15, which is an auspicious day. Hindus celebrate Makar Sankranti on this day (a festival to mark the end of winter season).

After Bollywood's 'first' baby was born on NOvember 16, millions of suggestions poured in from fans in their bid to help the family decide on a name. The family has been taking their own sweet time in shortlisting the suggestions.

The narrowed down list comprised three names, revealed a source to Indian daily, DNA.

All names start with A in the final list. However, Aishwarya chose the final two options and the entire family agreed with her decision.

Now, it will be up to Amitabh Bachchan to choose the final name.

Meanwhile, the Bachchans disappointed their fans yet again as there was a lot of speculation that Big B's might reveal his granddaugter's image to the world in the New Year.

Although the new 'Paa' Abhishek tweeted New Year greetings to his fans and friends, the much-anticipated image never followed. The Bachchan family is determined not to reveal the baby girl's pictures to the world any time soon.
