    dear maami,

    In brahmin marriages the sasthrigal names the bride during the marriage with the name selected by the grooms parents, though the name will not be in use (that custom still prevails) . i wanted to know the significance of this practise. our elders have created all the practices for some good reason. so wanted to know the good reason behind this. can u share it with us if u know the reason. thanx in advance

    It is the name selected by the grand mother of the groom. She will name the bride his family deity's name. The name which she selects will be chanted at the time of her death with which name the soul will be identified on sradha day.

    They will spell the great great grand mothers' name who lived for a long time and rendered great services to the family.
