Chances are that you have heard the word ‘Lallantop’ in one of the most famous kids’ cartoons nowadays, Bandbudh Aur Budbak, though it is quite popular in the State of Uttar Pradesh and even used in media as a slang. In simpler terms, Lallantop meaning in Punjabi would be ‘Top Kid, ਸਿਰੇ ਦਾ ਜਵਾਕ ਜਾਂ ਸਿਰੇ ਦਾ ਬੱਚਾ.’ There are discussions and questions asked on online forums about the meaning of this word, which has become very popular and can be used not simply for a child but also to connote anything that is ‘cool’ or is of top quality.
Lalla is a word used in rural areas for a male child, and you can hear people from the States of Bihar and UP using this word quite regularly to call out to their children. I have personally heard it countless times amongst the migrant families from both of these States. However, as is the case with many phrases, dialogues, or even words used in the media, the popularity grows and so does the context in which those could be used.
So, Lallantop in Punjabi can be used to connote anything that is of top quality.
