whats in a name?

One of my office collegues asked me on Monday what does “vinu” – by name mean? I  knew it was an alias for Lord Ganesha. But she was asking what does it really mean? I ask my father and he says it means new, unique or different.

Do some googling and you reach here where there is a tranlation for vinu in each language! Some of them are wine, wound, vessel, breeze, hub, mortar and press! Then I did a google with these keywords ‘vinu sanskrit meaning’ – as my name does have sanskrit roots and you get to this page … which says in a way vinu means ‘without‘ or ‘except‘!

Guess, names have their own way of life 😉
