A young bull-calf is brought and made to cross the initiating door. The name of this animal, which serves as a stepping-stone for Aïke during the bull jump, will become his clan name as a man, the name that designates him in society. Aïke will become Anoumba. ///Un jeune taurillon est amené, on lui fait passer la porte initiatique. Le nom de cette bête qui servira de marchepied à Aïké pendant le saut de taureaux deviendra son nom clanique d’homme, le nom qui le désignera socialement. Aïké deviendra Anoumba.
