Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 1:59

_ _ eighth day — The law (Genesis 17:12) was observed, even though the eighth day after birth should be a sabbath (John 7:23; and see Philippians 3:5).

_ _ called him — literally, “were calling” — that is, (as we should say) “were for calling.” The naming of children at baptism has its origin in the Jewish custom at circumcision (Genesis 21:3, Genesis 21:4); and the names of Abram and Sarai were changed at its first performance (Genesis 17:5, Genesis 17:15).
