The baby naming ceremony is called Naamkaran. This happens when the baby is Six weeks old. All the family members gather at gurudwara as naming ceremonies are one of the major events in Sikhs culture. Sikhs believe that children are gift of god. They also believe that certain births are reincarnation of ancestors. In the naming ceremony the Hukkam from the Holy book is read out loud and naming is based on the first letter of the hukkam.This hukam is read by randomly opening a page of the holy book. The bhai Sahib in front of Guru granth reads out the name loudly. This is accepted by the audience with loud cheers of "jo bole so nihaal, Sat sri Akaal" which means whoever praises the lord will be fulfilled by his blessings.  This ceremony is marked by singing praise to the god and thanking god for the newborn.

This is the traditional custom of the naming ceremony. Gender does not play a major role when it comes to sikh religion. Sikhism do not promote caste system.Hence it is common for this community to share middle names. The whole community is viewed as equal and there is no difference among all. Names are interchangeable for girls and boys. Sikh names have surnames such as kaur for girls and Singh for boys. Kaur means princess and singh means lion. Women are given Kaur as surname to show equality with men. This makes their name unique from their fathers and husbands which indicates they are independent. Some also choose to keep family names as surnames.In this case, kaur or Singh becomes the middle name.
