  • The parents would decide on the name for a child, sometimes naming the baby after a deceased loved one, and announce it to gathered friends. The naming was followed by a party with a large buffet. In 2368, while experiencing the life of Kamin, Jean-Luc Picard and Eline recalled their daughter Meribor's naming ceremony just after Batai's was held. He remembered being afraid he would drop her. (TNG: "The Inner Light" )
  • The Naming Ceremony is a long, highly prized Sangheili celebration that occurs only once in a Sangheili's life. It is essentially a right to passage, with the individuals permitted to form his own surname, usually occurring only after being accepted into the Covenant Military. Though more of a private affair, the local community beyond the keep can also attend, with the more important leaders such as Kaidons measure their popularity and success with how many individuals attend. The ceremony is housed in a structure of forerunner origin, or a dedicated temple when no such artifact is nearby. As a result, the spaces can vary, from a small room only about a few metres, to larger multi-story structures which can house a full company and the entire keep.
  • At a certain age, the Alpha will decide that it is time for the pup(s) to receive their name(s). The time chosen is normally when the pups have their fangs grow in. The Alpha will decide a certain prey that must be caught in order for the ceremony to be held correctly (ex. the white rabbit caught by Lucky, Lick, Fiery). During this night, discipline and tension isn't as strict. The Alpha and Beta appreciate and expect silence during this time. The ceremony then comes to an end.

Quote
  • A name sums up a dog's character. That's why it's so important. It's vital for a dog to get it right, because it will define him all his life.

  • At a certain age, the Alpha will decide that it is time for the pup(s) to receive their name(s). The time chosen is normally when the pups have their fangs grow in. The Alpha will decide a certain prey that must be caught in order for the ceremony to be held correctly (ex. the white rabbit caught by Lucky, Lick, Fiery). During this night, discipline and tension isn't as strict. The Alpha and Beta appreciate and expect silence during this time. The Alpha will eventually call for the specific prey they had requested for the ceremony. The prey that was selected to be chosen will be carried out by Omega, and the lowest-ranking patrol dog. Once the prey is brought to the Alpha, they will order the dogs away. After the dogs leave, the Alpha will command two dogs to step forward. One dog will put their paws on the prey's forelegs, with the other dog placing their paws on its hind legs. The Alpha will put their paw down and crush the prey's head. The Alpha will rip the prey's pelt off while the body is given to the Beta. Once the Alpha is completed with this task, the Beta will toss the carcass aside. The Moon-Dog begins to shine on the pelt of the deceased prey. Alpha will call the pup(s) forward during this time, ordering them to take their positions on the Moon Pelt. The pup(s) will hop onto the rock and sit down onto the pelt. The Alpha will assure a pup, such as when Alpha reassured Thorn and Beetle during their ceremonies and said these words: "The time has come for you to choose the names you will carry until you meet the Earth-Dog. So close your eyes, and turn your faces to the Moon-Dog. Now that she is at her brightest, she will show you who you are." After their speech, the Alpha will begin to howl. One by one, each dog in the pack will join in. This howl will form as the Great Howl. As the Howl fades away, the Alpha will question the pup(s) their chosen names. At this time, the pup must open their eyes and say their new name. Some dogs will get inspiration at that moment (ex. Squirm seeing a beetle), and others think long and hard on their names (ex. Nose deciding her name Thorn). The ceremony then comes to an end.
