When we are born, we literally have no identity. We come on this Earth just as another human being. Here our name becomes the first thing that gets associated with our identity. But imagine our life if we are nameless identities! Unimaginable right?
The process of naming a newborn child has been given significant importance in various cultures across the world to justify a name's significance.
There is an elaborate ceremony where all the close relatives and friends are invited. This solves a two in one purpose. One is that they get to meet the newest member of the family. And the second one is they can give their blessings to the child.
Many believers also look for auspicious dates and even specific times to get these rituals done. Many believe that doing the naming ceremony of the child at a suitable time can provide many benefits. These remain with the child for their whole life.
Today, in this blog, we will see the favorable dates of every month in 2023 on which the naming ceremony function can be done. Also, we will see different rituals practiced across various cultures during the naming ceremony.

These are the favorable dates on which the naming ceremony of the child can be carried out. Here you should not be confused when you come across the words baptism or christening, as these are nothing but the names of the naming or namkaran ceremony in English.
Anyway, these are dates on which the astronomical events are favorable and resonate with every horoscope. However, it should be kept in mind that these are not cent percent accurate because the celestial bodies up above keep on moving and sometimes get really unpredictable. This changes their respective impacts on the horoscopes. So before choosing any date for your infant's naming ceremony, you must always talk to astrologer on phone first.
Different Types Of Naming Ceremony Culture
The naming ceremony of a child is given the most importance in Hindu culture. However, there are some others as well that celebrate this ritual in their own way. So let's know about a few of them.
Hebrew Baby Naming Ceremony
The Hebrew baby naming ceremony says that the baby boy naming ceremony should be done on the eighth day after birth. However, the baby girl cradle ceremony can wait for up to two weeks after birth. The rituals conducted during the baby girl and baby boy cradle ceremony of jews are Ashkenazi Customs and Brit Milah, respectively.
Humanist Naming Ceremony
There are some people for whom there is not much religious significance of the naming ceremony. They mostly perform it to get their near and dear ones together and meet the new baby. This also gives them a chance to bless the child with all the good luck and fortune. It is termed as the humanist naming ceremony when these non-believers perform the naming ceremony of their child.
Ghanaian Naming Ceremony
The Ghanaian naming ceremony includes bringing the newborn baby outside for the first time after eight days of birth. It is non-religious and, for the same reason, also referred to as the outdooring ceremony. The baby girl naming ceremony includes piercing their ears, and that of the boys includes circumcision.
Baby Barsa Ceremony
Sometimes the naming ceremony of infants in the Hindu cultures is called the baby barasala function. It includes calling the baby's name in the right ear while covering the left one with a betel leaf. This is usually done by the paternal aunt, maternal uncle, or someone elder in the family. Here the child gets the blessings of everyone present in the function.
These are some of the renowned cultural beliefs that are followed during the naming ceremony of infants. Some may believe that choosing the lucky dates may impact the whole future of the person. Whereas some others may not really connect it with religion. Whatever its significance, one thing's sure that the naming ceremony of the person is essential, at least for them.
