Namakarana (Sanskrit: नामकरण, Nāmakaraṇa) (literally, naming) is the naming ceremony in Hinduism and a Sanskara (rite of passage) to name a baby. This is an important part of 16 samskaras performed by any individual in one’s life time.

According to the Grhya Sutras, Namakarana ceremony is typically performed on the tenth or the twelfth day after birth. Some texts suggest the naming ceremony be done on the first new moon or full moon day after the 10th day of birth. Alternate opinions range from the tenth day to the first day of the second year.

Naming a child is not merely a ritualistic activity for a Hindu family. The name suggests the personality traits that his parents want him to possess. The child's name also reflects the family's religious and cultural affiliations.
