So I have created another riddle for all riddle lovers. Might be easy for people out there but I want you guys to give me a correct explanation of each stanza.

You find me attached to many things in life,
Many of you throw me out after using that thing.

Replace a single character with one of mine,
I become an ancient language baby name for this rhyme.

Break me into two continuous words,
Investigate in first with intensities of sound.

Inside, I have a power and skill,
and a hollow object to will.

Hope you guys like it!

Have some hints to understand it more, in case.

Hint#1:

You will found a baby name in that ancient language. Also, a holy book was earlier written in that language and a well-known country is using modern form of that language.

Hint#2:

An example of continuous words. "Everyone" is a word and Every and One are the two continuous words but "evory" is not. Continuous words could have a common letter. In this riddle, continuous words will have the same length.

Hint#3:

To complete the last stanza you need to rearrange the letters of the word.

Leave a comment in case you need help to understand anything. Guys, it is a word that most of us see during the shopping.

  • $\begingroup$ I guess Sanskrit is the language being referred and modern form of it is being used by Nepal. $\endgroup$ – Mea Culpa Nay Aug 31 '17 at 13:46

I'm trying to give this name to you, a

label

You find me attached to many things in life, Many of you throw me out after using that thing.

A label is a tag attached to a purchase giving information e.g. the instructions for use, and may be removed when using the object.

Replace a single character with one of mine, I become an ancient language baby name for this rhyme.

Credit due to @Mea Culpa Nea this is Hebrew, the word may be babel which means confusing as in this riddle.
Hint 1: Book is the Bible, and the country Israel.

Break me into two continuous words, Investigate in first with intensities of sound.

The two continuous words are lab and bel, of the same length and sharing a letter.

A lab is a place made to investigate in, and a bel is a unit used to measure sound volume (more commonly a tenth of this is a decibel).

Inside, I have a power and skill, and a hollow object to will.

Rearrange the letters of the word label, the following are found inside,

power and skill - able , hollow object to will - bell

  • $\begingroup$ Good catch :). Also, its LABAL (a baby name). $\endgroup$ – Anurag Sep 3 '17 at 17:08

Well, the words are

DISCOUNT-SALES

and the explanation goes like this:

You find me attached to many things in life, Many of you throw me out after using that thing.

Many things in life are linked with selling and buying.

Many of you throw me out after using that thing.

After using things (which are bought in discount sales!) we normally dispose

Replace a single character with one of mine, I become an ancient language baby name for this rhyme.

Replace last 'S' with 'M'- becoming SALEM, a Hebrew baby name, Hebrew being an ancient language

Break me into two continuous words, Investigate in first with intensities of sound.

DISCOUNT meets the required explanation for intensities of sound, perhaps.

Inside, I have a power and skill, and a hollow object to will.

To be provided ...
