who should name the baby

i think naming the babies should be left to the mother. some guys out there can be a little crazy when naming their kids. like my friend's husband wanted to name their first child as cornelius. he said it's unique and cool. hahaha

nice question.we name babies to give them a separate identity. in a nuclear family, a baby is named by his/her parents but in a joint family, this privelige is mostly given to grand parents.they r too excited for the same. they feel respected. but sometimes parents r willing to name their baby but r forced to name the baby which is choosen by the grandparents. i think today ppl prefer 1 child. they have to fulfil all their dreams from them only. they have lot of excitement for everything. i think child shud be named by the parents itself but if they wish, they can give this opportunity to anyone else.it depends on the parents.

Hey, good question. When I was baptising my son. Everyone had a name and not picking one would mean an insult to the person as everyone thought their name was the perfect one. So I just nodded to every name and when the pastor asked me the name at the alter........I said Donovan (a name I had decided before he was born). Even My wife was surprised....and just giggled.
