Congratulations poured in yesterday as Virat and Anushka welcomed their firstborn at Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital.
As the Indian cricket team skipper announced the news on social media, desi Tweeple is currently guessing and predicting the baby girl’s name. Some attempted to combine the letters in Virat and Anushka’s name in their wordplay.
Her name should be Anuvi.
Anuvi means 'experience'.
Anu – shka
Vi – rat#Virushka

Others even suggested ‘Sydney’.
Like @BrianLara 's daughter name Sydney, can Kohli's daughter's name be same as she is born on a day when his Dad's team fought incredibly in Sydney! 😀 Congratulations to skipper @imVkohli n @AnushkaSharma.The baby girl will be sharing her B'day with one of papa's heroes Dravid

What are the odds of #ViratKohli proposing the name – PuRiVi Kohli, in honour of Pujara, Rishabh and Vihari for today's iconic test match.
Yeah, i am logging off.

Other had some unusual jokes regarding the same:
A personal request to @imVkohli and @AnushkaSharma ki baby ka name 'A' se mat rakhna… Viva/Exam ke time bahut dukh hota hai!
Saying this from Personal Experience!
Baaki All the Best for the Future ♥️ We Love you.#ViratKohli #AnushkaSharma #Virushka #Virat

Read it somewhere: I am waiting for Virat and Anushka to name their baby “world Cup” so that the media channels can report… “Virat Kohli World Cup ghar le aaye”
