The Circumcision Ceremony in a Nutshell

While it is a separate section of the ceremony. it is part of that ceremony and done at the same time. Since the child as a member of Bnai Yisrael is entering the "covenant", he is given his identity at that moment. It is called kriyas hashem (calling or announcement of the name). Thus the person who will read the bracha that gives the name is announced

Rabbi Ploni is honored with kriyas hashem

As @DoubleAA points out the person does not have to be a rabbi and the announcement can be made in any language. I just gave a typical example.

@msh210 points out that this is actually not a requirement of the bris even though most people do so and make it an "honor".
