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:
  • Introduction
  • Background on the family

  • Acknowledgment of parents
