Selecting a name for newborns (Namakaran) is one of the most important rituals in Hindu Dharma, which is usually held on the 12th day of the child’s birth. The naming involves family tradition/customs as well as a religious practice, and that’s why this ceremony is taken very seriously in Hindu culture. These days people not only seek after the nice name but the names with good meaning too. Thus, in association with the child’s birth chart (astrology), a Sanskrit alphabet will be chosen as the first letter of the child’s name and the family are to decide on the name starting with that specific alphabet. All these steps are to make sure that the name is lucky for the child.
