    Nanak.....a "name" not found in any previous Hindu Name list/god list/devta list...

    Then comes ANGAD...a CHANGE from Lehna.........

    Amardass, Ramdass, Arjan, harGOBIND, Har rai, har Kishan, Teg Bahadur and GOBIND..............all common Hindu Names/devta names/god lists...............AND then in the ANGAD TRADITION.....................

    SINGH..another CHANGE !!

    A wonderful symettery....but surely analysing the word "nanak"..( I have also heard that it means...Na Nak No nose etc on basis of Language- meaning/signifying that Nanak Ji didnt have the "nose"..haumaii/what we call face/keeping up with the nose/face/etc.....and the no dukh.. etc is..HINDSIGHT....its simply a NAME that Baba Kalu ji or some other elder or Pandit Hardyaal Ji - the family Pandit.... thought up....after all Bebe NANAKI the elder sister came FIRST..and its the very SAME WORD....so do all those "arguments" also apply to her ?? WAS Baba KALU JI also just as "insistent" on asking for the MEANINGS of Nanaki ?? as to WHY that Name Nanki is not Hindu...not Muslim...why is his daughter so named ?? was it also Pandit Hardyaal who suggested the name of Nanaki...and was this also analysed and explained to Baba Kalu Ji..then this "sakhi" falls apart since why would Klau Ji wnat to know it all over again ?? Nanaki is NOT GURU Nanak...so wheres the LOGIC ?? Imho this is faulty logic thought up by experts AFTER the Guru nanak ji was long GONE...:wah:

    Gyani ji... not sure where I read it .. but another version is that, the sister brother were born at their Nanake (Nana ke = Maternal grandparents') ghar (house)... hence the names.

    On the lighter side, I have never heard of the name Dadak.

    With Regards.

    Ref:...Meaning Of NANAK

    There is only one meaning of NANAK and that is "GURU JOTi".

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
