Mongolian parents have different methods for choosing baby names than Westerners do. When a child is born, their parents visit a Buddhist monastery and the lama chooses a name. Mongolian baby names also come from objects, since they also choose a name based on the first thing they see after a baby is born. It is also traditional to put several names on pieces of paper in a bowl of rice and shake the bowl until one of the slips comes to the top, revealing the babys name.
