Everything changes with age - height, weight, skin complexion, relationships, education, career and even life. But there is only one thing that sticks forever, our name.
A name isn’t just a word, it is an identity, the first impression we create on someone.
The naming ceremony or the Nama sanskar is this one of the most important functions of an infant’s life as it is going to decide his future.
The ceremony usually happens a few days from the birth of the infant. A black thread or gold chain called an aranjanam is tied around the baby's waist.The child's eyes are lined with mayye or Kohl. A black spot is placed on one cheek or asymmetrically on the forehead, to ward off the evil eyes.
According to the date and time of birth of the child, a particular letter of the Sanskrit alphabet associated with the child's solar birth sign is chosen which would prove lucky for the baby. The baby is then given a name starting with that letter.
The grandfather whispers the chosen Hindu name in the child's right ear three times while the left ear is covered with a betel leaf. This is then repeated with the left ear. A mixture of ghee or honey is given to the infant as a base for its various foods in the future. Finally, an arati is performed for seven times to thank the Lord.
