Naming Ceremony

The naming ceremony is one of the most important rites of passage in life. In African society, the naming ceremony announces the birth of a newborn to their extended family and the larger community.

The methods of the practice differ over cultures and religions. The timing at which a name is assigned can vary from some days after birth to several months or many years.

Look familiar? For Hindus, this practice is called Mundan and is done between 4 months to 3 years of age. This practice is revered and celebrated as it represents the child leaving behind the misfortunes of their previous life.
