Pregnancy is a roller coaster of emotions and thoughts and literally everything else you can think of. It basically brings a new life on the planet and the home and in the life of the family, parents and everyone you’re associated with. It also brings new responsibilities and new hardships along with all the love and cuteness a baby can shower you with. Everything in mind, what is the first thing a person does after the baby gets delivered? Just as you hold your baby for the first time and look at it for the great creation you did, you name it. People name their babies on different factors, some belief in astrology to decide it, while, some would just name it their favorite movie actors/characters. It’s all up to the parents as to what to name their babies and it nearly never happens that a baby goes on without his/her name. But, what if the parents don’t name their newborn?
Below is what happens when parents decide not to name their newborn:
Some parents have the names already picked out.
While some go with astrology.
The hospitals insist you name your baby as soon as you are discharged.
You can name your baby in between 24-48 hours.
In the case of C-Sections, you have 72 hours.
Although, you can choose not to name your baby in the hospital.
You’ll get a notice from the State Department of Health though.
But, it’s not a crime to not name your baby.
They won’t have any legal proof they’re the citizens of the country.
This also leads to mental problems if it goes too far.
Even if the said legal problems are ignored, there can be a mental effect on the baby as he grows up as without a name you don’t have an identity in today’s society and nothing unique that people may call you leading to isolation or something even worse.
