Significance: The Naming Ceremony
According to Hinduism this ceremony holds great importance, since a name brings substantial influence in the overall personality of a human being. Upon studying the planetary trajectory (at the time of birth), a meaningful name is given to the child using auspicious alphabets.
The auspicious time mentioned to perform the ceremony is either on the 10th, 11th or the 12th day after the child’s birth. It has been observed that in some communities, it is performed on the 101st day or the first day of the second year.
