The naming ceremony of a child is one of the first and most important ceremonies. Irrespective of the community or the religion, the tradition is carried out far and wide, including Karnataka. In Hindus, this is called Naamkaranam and the name of the child is given as per his or her Rashi and Nakshatra or chosen by the parents. The ceremony is quite lavish and is attended by close friends, family, relatives and acquaintances, who all gather to bless the young one. Carry out the rituals of this unique tradition in any of the best naming ceremony halls in Mysore.
