Question:

BS”D

Due to have a child who in 5 months from now, when the parents can give a name to a child (male or female)?

 

Answer:

The name of a boy is given at his bris. In fact this is part of the bracha that is made after making the bris. Regarding the name of a girl, there are differant customs. Some people give it when the husband gets an aliya after the baby is born, some people do it the first Shabbos.
