I've always thought that the 6th and 7th Guru's name would have equally sounded nice if it had "Dev" in the ending instead of Sahib.

But Sahib also sounds just as good. Some people also add "Sahib" to the name of Guru Nanak Dev jee instead of "Dev". They say it as "Guru Nanak Sahib Jee".

Maybe its a modern thing because Sikhs did not want to use the names Bedi or Sodhi. I read on SikhSangat.com a while back that some sunday school teachers at gurdwaras discourage children from using DEV beacuase its too Hindu!!!! Wont be long before we start saying 'Bhai Sahib Guru Nanak Singh Ji'

Then again the first guru is also known as Rimpoche Nanak Lama, Nanak Faqir, Baba Nanak Shah etc, etc depending on who they're followers are.
