On Monday, the daughter of Dhurmus (Sitaram Kattel) and Suntali (Kunjana Ghimire) was named amongst a traditional naming ceremony – Nwaran. The priest suggested the name to start with ‘Do’ according to the location of celestial bodies at the time of the birth of the child.

Although Dhurmus has jokingly stated calling the mother Donisha’s Mother, the name of the child can still be changed for the day-to-day use.
Sitaram Kattel and Kunjana had given birth to their first child after five years of marriage. They started dating while working together in popular comedy serial ‘Meri Bassai’.
Friends and families have suggested to name the child to be ‘Sanjana’ but, the parents weren’t happy with the name. The name seeking game usually continues for months before settling for the right name. Nepal government doesn’t require the child’s name to be registered right after the birth of the child.
