Anushka Sharma And Virat Kohli Named Their Newborn Son, 'Akaay', Know Its Meaning In Hinduism

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are hailed as the 'IT' couple in Bollywood as well as in the cricket world. The duo got married in 2017, and on January 11, 2021, they welcomed their baby girl, Vamika, into this world. However, Vamika was recently promoted to big sister as the adorable couple welcomed their second baby, whom they cutely named Akaay. On February 20, 2024, Virat and Anushka took to their respective IG handles and announced the news of their baby boy's arrival and his unique name. However, do you know what is the meaning of Akaay? Read on to know the adorable meaning of this Sanskrit-originated name of Virat and Anushka's baby boy.

What does the name 'Akaay' mean?

Well, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's fans have been shedding happy tears since the news about their second baby's arrival surfaced online. Since the last few months, reports have been rife that the duo would embrace parenthood yet again, and the same is confirmed now. In a picture note, Virat and Anushka revealed that they welcomed their baby boy, Akaay, on February 15, 2024. However, after doing a little research, we got to know that Akaay is a Sanskrit-originated name, which means 'a singular power' or 'a supreme power'. On the other hand, 'Akaay' with a single 'A', i.e., 'Akay' in Turkish means 'full moon', or 'shining moon' and in Turkiye, this name is used for both baby girls and boys. Moreover, as per several other reports, in Hindi Akaay means incorporeal. While 'kaay' refers to 'kaaya' i.e., shadow or form, 'A' is used as an antonym, thereby making the meaning 'higher existence' or 'incorporeal'. For those who don't know, the meaning of Vamika's name is 'Durga'. Well, there's no denying the fact that such good news actually made our day.
