‘Om’ is a popular Indian name. ‘Om’ (Aum) is considered a sacred syllable in Sanskrit because it represents the range of sounds that can be made by the human voice. It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred incantation to be intoned at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or prior to any prayer or mantra. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound “OM”.
It’s a boy name.

Very interesting. It also explains why you hear that. It really is a peaceful and calming sound when you make it. Thanks!Bushman2015 A to Z Challenge Ambassador@jwb81074
