Krishna’s and Balarama’s Name-Giving Ceremony

Eager to hear from Garga Muni, Nanda Maharaja arranged for a secret name-giving ceremony in his cowshed. Garga Muni informed Nanda Maharaja that the son of Rohini would be very pleasing to His family members, so He would be called Rama (Balarama). In the future He would also be extraordinarily strong and therefore would be called Baladeva. Garga Muni informed Nanda that his son would be known as Vasudeva and Krishna, but that this child has had many other names due to His varieties of pastimes. He said that the child would have power, beauty, and opulence, all on the level of Narayana, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.-Summarized from Krishna Book, Chapter 8
