Comments for PRANAV:

The name Pranav has its roots in a vibrant branch of Indian Philosophy called sankhya. The name is a combination of two words: Prakriti+Nava. It means The universal state of nature which could be crossed by a boat.

Sankhya defined two aspects of creation, prakriti or latent matter, and Purusha or the active agent of motive. This corresponds to Rene Descarte's matter and motion. Aftre birth, one could cross the ocean of the universe through the boat of the promordial sound i.e. Om. I find the name closest to the sound of creation at the onset of the universe.
