Naming Ceremonies


Congratulations on welcoming a new life into the world! A new child is a joyous occasion.

A Naming Ceremony is a chance to remind everyone of the great responsibility involved in raising a child and to recognise those who will have an important role in your child's development. During the naming ceremony parents are reminded and made more fully aware of their responsibilities, as are the godparents (also called, "mentors" or "guardians") and grandparents.

Naming Ceremonies are not only for newborn babies and it is common to hold a naming ceremony as the centrepiece of the child's first birthday celebrations.

A Naming Ceremony is a very special way of celebrating the birth of your child and welcoming the new addition to the family. It is also a beautiful way to welcome and celebrate an adoptive child into the family or to embrace stepchildren into a new family.

Whether the ceremony is held at home, in a park, a restaurant, many fun elements can be woven into the ceremony to make it a relaxed and memorable day.

I provide certificates for the child, godparents/mentors. Certificates for siblings and grandparents can also be arranged.

Your child’s Naming Day will be unique and tailored to suit your individual needs.
