The Church of Uganda has urged parents to baptize their parents with names that bear meaning. During a baptism event on Boxing Day at St. Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe, Rev. Can Moses Banja the Head of Baptism at St. Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe said that parents today are giving their children names that will have lasting side effects.
He also noted that some parents have taken to naming their children after prominent places, football teams, types of cars etc.
He advised parents to research before naming their children. “A name should contain blessings.”
One of the parents during the baptism had given her kid an Islamic name.
