Baby Bris Naming

In the Torah it says that Hashem changed Avraham's (Abraham) name from Avram to Avraham at the time of his circumcision. In keeping with that tradition, a Jewish boy is given his Hebrew name at the time of his Bris Milah. Judaism places a great deal of significance on a child's Hebrew name. A Hebrew name is a gift which lasts a lifetime. It is a symbol of Jewish identity and a banner your child will honor and cherish, linking him to his family heritage. It is often customary to name the child after someone who led a righteous life so that the child will try to emulate that individual. Ashkenazi Jews often name their children after a dearly departed relative, while Sephardic Jews sometimes name their children in honor of living relatives. In the case of someone who died at a young age, another name referring to life, or the name of a person who lived a full life is added. Consulting with your Rabbi or spiritual advisor is always commendable with regard to your customs.
