Your name is part of your identity in the world. It connects you to your family, your culture and even your faith. Our first names are given to us usually by our parents in the first days of life. Most parents spend hour upon hour contemplating what they will name a new baby.
Those who practice a Jewish lifestyle often have two names. The first is their secular name. This is the name on their birth certificate and the name used every day in school and business by friends and family members. The other name is their Hebrew name which is the name by which he or she is known to G-d. This name is sacred and used in prayer and life cycle events.
Traditionally one receives his Hebrew name in the first week of life, however, a Hebrew name can be given at any time. For example, someone who has just come to a Jewish way of life generally takes on a Hebrew name when they make that commitment.
