Naming Ceremonies

Naming ceremonies by Sharon Gordon Celebrant

Naming and welcoming ceremonies tailored to your family.

A happy family occasion

and a wonderful reason for a party!  Whether you have a newborn, are adopting or fostering, or two families coming together.

Let’s introduce your new family member/s to the whole family and the wider community.  A naming or welcoming ceremony is a wonderful way to do it.

What a great way to share the challenges of being a parent and retell any little family situations and stories that would be fun to share.

Time to talk about the impact your new addition/s will have on your family – brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents can all get involved.

Your celebration can be held anywhere you want it.  Hire a venue with room for children to run around if it’s going to be a big affair.  And an Outdoor Ceremony would be great in this case too.  Bouncy Castles and Street Food Vendors would go down well.

If you want something more intimate for very close family members you might choose to have it at home.  Alternatively there are so many different and wonderful venues that you’ll be spoilt for choice.

What about ‘Sparents’

or Guide Parents, God Parents as they are traditionally known.   Maybe you’ll ask your friends or relatives who share the same values as you.

They’ll promise to provide a safety net should it ever be needed, and a caring and loving influence on them going forward in life.

Will you choose just a couple of people or create a whole team of friends all with their own special skills and qualities.

Brothers and sisters of the new arrival/s can also be given a role in the ceremony.  It’s a great way to cement family ties and relationships.
