Naming Ceremony

A naming ceremony is a non-religious celebration. This is a way of welcoming the child and officially introducing him/her to family and friends. The arrival of a new baby can be celebrated with a naming ceremony. It can be an emotional ceremony full of love, joy and happiness, bringing two families together.
The birth of a child is not only a magical event but the bringing together of two families is strengthened through blood. Providing a naming ceremony for older children is also a beautiful way to affirm their self-esteem and give them a sense of unity/belonging within the family circle.

Is a Naming Ceremony right for my child?

Now you know what a naming ceremony is ask yourself the following questions and if the answers are yes then a naming ceremony is for you and your baby.

Do you want to celebrate the birth of your new baby in a meaningful way that is not attached to a religion?

Do you want to surround your baby with love, and well wishes from family and friends?

The ceremony will be a happy occasion. We can include any items you wish. For example if you have any family heritage traditions we can incorporate any solemn or fun loving ideas.

There will be an introduction and welcome and a brief history of parents/grandparents. 

There can be Stories, poems, songs.

Vows of parents, the declaration of the child’s name and its meaning are made.

The introduction of Godparents/mentors/guardians if you wish can be made.

We will welcome the baby and present certificates to those concerned.
