question: why do Nigerian couples wait for 7-days before naming their new born child?
Kindly, why do people in Nigeria wait for 7-days before naming a Child? as in what’s with the “7” days.
- Why 7-days, why not 2-days or 14-days or 1-month.
- In fact, why not give the child a name before “it” is born. I am of the opinion that a choice of names could be in place if it comes out a boy or girl.
- is there anything religious in waiting for 7-days? and if the couple chooses to name the Child immediately, whats the sin in it?
Why the 7-days? What will happen if a couple doesn’t wait for 7-days?
