My husband was asking me yesterday if there is a comprable thing as a Bris for girls? I know you can do a baby naming but that is later. He feels like he wants our girl to have a welcome just as much as a boy would (i agree with him!). I know someone who had a twins girl and a boy and the bris was for the girl also since the parents didnt want to leave her out.

Well, baby girls receive their names at the synagogue. It's usually a private affair, where the father goes to shul and presents the baby. But some parents make this a special occasion as well. I've only been to two, one of my friends had a small afternoon coffee and one of dh's friend had a breakfast after the ceremony, pretty much like a bris.
