Four months after birth, Beti B finally has a name. And, actor-couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan’s daughter’s name Aaradhya has become a hot topic of discussion. The name that means ‘to be worshipped’ in Sanskrit, was the trending topic on microblogging site Twitter as soon as it was announced on Wednesday.

While the family has not given an official statement as yet, reports suggest the family registered the name at BMC (Bombay Municipal Corporation). Astrologers predict that the name would prove lucky for the baby girl.

"The baby’s name sums up to seven, depicting planet Neptune. Her destiny number sums up to two, depicting moon. She will be lucky and will be a celebrity like her family members," says astrologer Vikram Mehta.

Tarot card reader Seema Midha agrees: "Many celebrities have names that start with A. That is a plus for her. Her name sums up to number five which will be very lucky for her as well as her dad because his number is also five. I think she will make a name in Hollywood."

Numerologist Niraj Mancchanda says, "On her birth, Amitabh Bachchan banned the media. That was indicative of her power that she managed to keep the entire media away."

Twitter, too, was abuzz with comments. "Will Aaradhya Bachchan learn KBC before ABC?" tweeted MTV India. Mohit_ak wrote, "Ab toh bache bache ko pata hai is bachchan ka naam.’
