Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s decision to name their firstborn Taimur created a storm online. Many misinterpreted the name to be synonymous with Timur, a conqueror who invaded India. In reality, Taimur means something else, which Saif explained thus to Mumbai Mirror: “I’m aware of the heritage of the Turkish ruler and my son was not named after him. He was Timur, my son is Taimur. Perhaps the root is similar but it’s not the same name. Taimur is an ancient Persian name meaning iron.”
