Other Origin(s):Indian
Meaning:Child, young
Balu is a boy’s name of Sanskrit, Tamil, and Hindi origin, meaning “child” or “young.” As a variation of the name Bala, both baby names share a connection to youth with their similar meanings. Balu is especially charming for its softer, longer sound, adding a hint of seriousness to the light-hearted name. Giving baby a name like Balu signifies more than their—albeit, cute—current status in life, but connotes an everlasting young-at-heart attitude that will make baby endearing to everyone around them.
