This morning in Shul a fellow named his daughter, and Tachanun was said. To the best of my knowledge this is correct, as it is only mentioned not to say Tachanun when there is a Bris. Is there any source that says not to say Tachanun when a girl is being named?

"I believe what I am asking for doesn't exist. Does it exist?" is a funny form for a question here. – Double AA Aug 7 '14 at 15:18
