How do I get an Igorot name?

beday /bə.da’y/ : nickname
gobbaw /gob.ba’w/ : naming ritual; baptism, the Sagada way
pinikpikan /pi.nik.pi’kan/ : chicken and smoked pork

An Igorot name is not based on your birthday or on the date you visited Sagada. It is based either on the kind of person you are, or the Sagada family line you can be associated with. 🙂
