Baby naming ceremonies

What is a naming ceremony for?

A naming ceremony is a non religious way to welcome a new child into the family. They can also celebrate adoptive children and step children forming part of a new family.

During the ceremony the following will happen:

  • The celebrant will welcome your child into the family and announce the names you have chosen.
  • Poems and readings from a wide selection can be read by the celebrant, or family and friends.
  • Parents and chosen adults can make promises of commitment to the child.
  • Grandparents and absent relatives can also be part of the ceremony.
  • A certificate to commemorate the day will be signed and presented to you.
