Therefore, the naming ceremony is a must after the birth of the baby. During this time, parents keep their baby’s name thoughtfully. At the same time, nowadays people search online and choose the most different name for their child.
This particular article by Mom Junction is based on this naming ceremony. Here we will tell about this rite in detail, in which you will get other information from its method. There are 16 sacraments in Hinduism, of which the naming ceremony is the fifth. It is formed by the combination of two words ‘name’ and the Sanskrit word ‘Karan’ meaning to make or keep. Some people also call it ‘Palan Rohan’. In Sanskrit, ‘cradle’ means swing and ‘rohan’ means to sit. During this the baby is named. This is the first sanskar of the baby after birth. However, before this Jatakram sanskar is also done, but now it is not so much in vogue. This is the reason that the day of naming ceremony is special for parents, other family members and relatives.
