Namkaran / Child Naming Ceremony

Namkaran is a traditional Hindu practice of naming the child. This ceremony is less of a religious ceremony and more of a public ceremony. Namkaran ceremony is ideally conducted on the 12 day after the birth of the child. If it is not possible to conduct this ceremony on the 12th day after the birth then this ceremony can be done on the 101st day after the birth or on the first birthday of the child.


How is Namkaran puja performed?


Though the naming ceremony varies from community to community a most commonly practiced way of this ceremony is as follows: A priest is usually called to perform the religious rites or puja. This usually accompanies ahawan or homa. Baby is bathed and dressed in new clothes. Friends and relatives are invited to bless the new baby. The priest would perform puja and consult patri to suggest a letter which is good for baby. This is based on hindu astrology. Baby's horoscope is also drawn on this day. If parents have decided on a name, it is whispered in baby's ear by an elder of the family, usually the father or the maternal uncle of the child.


These days the ceremony is conducted, but the name is not always kept according to the custom. Parents usually prefer to have a name which they like and have decided upon.
