A baby naming ceremony is a celebration of the arrival of your new child. It is a very special way of welcoming your child and officially introducing him or her to your family and friends.
They involve the important people in your child’s life – family and special friends. Parents have the opportunity to ask other adults to play a supportive role to their child through to adult life (as Godparents, mentors or supporters).
Naming ceremonies can be performed for anyone, at any age. The arrival of a new baby, uniting of step or adopted children within a family, or an adult name change are all great reasons to hold a naming ceremony.
The content of a naming ceremony can consist of:
- Background on the family
- The meaning of the name
- Reading or Poem
- Ritual e.g lighting of the candle, balloon release or planting of a tree
- Acknowledgment of parents
- Acknowledgment of Godparents/Mentors/Supporters
- Acknowledgment of Grandparents
- Signing & Presentation of Certificate
As your celebrant we will work together to create a unique ceremony that will be cherished for a lifetime.
