Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming Ceremonies

Another happy family occasion

Time for a party!  Let’s introduce your new family member to the whole family and the wider community.  A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate.

It’s a great time to share the challenges of being a parent and recall any little situations and stories you might want to tell.
Think about and tell everyone all about the impact your new child has had on your family – brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents can all get involved.

The ceremony and celebration can be held anywhere that suits you.  You can hire a venue if it’s going to be a big affair, with room for children to run around.  Or you can have it at home.  Maybe in your garden with a bouncy castle or a swimming pool for the party.  It’s entirely up to you – there are no rules.

‘’Very well written, ceremony was relaxed and everyone thought it was lovely.’’

 Then there’s the name

why was it chosen, and is there any family history attached to it?

Think about Guardians, Guide Parents, Sparents or whatever you choose to call them.  Maybe your friends or relatives who share the same values as you. They’ll promise to provide a safety net for your child 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 can also be given a role in the ceremony. 

It’s a great way to cement family ties and relationships.  Different generations and factions of the family coming together to welcome their newest member in a happy and joyful celebration.  What a great excuse for a party!
