Bris in the month of Nissan

This is one of a series of blog posts on things that might be done differently at a bris taking place on a special day on the Jewish calendar. See all of the links at this dedicated page

The book "Otzar HaBris" (Yossele Weisberg) has a section of halakhot surrounding what is done differently on noted days of the Jewish calendar.

 With respect to a bris during the first half of the month of Nissan, he shares the following insight, which is similar to what he shared regarding Chanukah:

 Some have the custom to name the child for the prince who brought his offerings on that day:
1st day of Nissan - Nachshon
2nd day of Nissan - Netanel
3rd day of Nissan - Eliav
4th day of Nissan - Elitzur
5th day of Nissan - Shlumiel *
6th day of Nissan - Elyasaf
7th day of Nissan - Elishama
8th day of Nissan - Gamliel
9th day of Nissan - Avidan
10th day of Nissan - Achiezer
11th day of Nissan - Pagiel
12th day of Nissan - Achira

Next up, a bris on Erev Pesach

 * for other reasons, I would not recommend giving the name Shlumiel
