Aishwarya Rai gave birth to her daughter more than two months ago, and she’s still without a name. Well, without an official name at any rate, though the young one has three unofficial names: first she was Beti B, then bitiya, and finally Princess (thanks to Oprah).Some fans have grown so impatient with the Bachchans and their refusal to decide on a name for Beti B that they’ve decided to make an official announcement regarding her name themselves. One fan took to Twitter today to announce to the world (including Amitabh Bachchan) that Aishwarya had named her daughter Aaliya.”NEWS NEWS!” announced the fan. “@Srbachchan RT #Aaliya is the Name of Beti B #Bachchan’s :-):-):-)”
The tweet spread rapidly and was taken as fact by a number of television broadcasts, all equally as eager to make some sort of official announcement.
Of course, the story isn’t true, Aishwarya Rai hasn’t chosen Aaliya as Beti B’s name (though it’s a lovely one and hopefully the Bachchans will consider it!). Earlier stories indicated that Aishwarya had selected a name, but that it has only been announced to close family and is otherwise being very carefully guarded as a family secret. Perhaps this secrecy over Beti B is one of the reasons Aishwarya refuses to hire any nannies or helpers? The fewer people who come in contact with Beti B, the fewer chances there are for any information to leak to the public.
Meanwhile fans continue to send suggestions to Amitabh and Abhishek, all surely hoping their chosen name will make the cut. An announcement has been promised by the Bachchans so many times that the family is beginning to resemble the boy who cried wolf. For their sake they should announce Beti B’s name as soon as possible to avoid their fans ceasing to be interested anymore.
