Of changing names and ritual

By Sparky | April 14, 2007

One of my friends has just taken a very big step in his life: he has chosen his name. For him the reason is religious, and he has picked his Hebrew name as a part of his personal spiritual path. Having chosen myself to pick a name that suits my personality I have an inkling of what a significant milestone in his life this must be for him. Changing your name is more than just changing a label, it’s putting a stake in the ground and expressing to the world who you really are.

Welcome Akiva Raanan Martin, may your life’s experiences (including both a chosen name, and soon to be married man) be full of friends and fortune.
