Naming Ceremonies

What is a Naming Ceremony?

A Naming Ceremony, whether you choose a Standard Naming CeremonyClassic Naming Ceremony or a Bespoke Naming Ceremony, is a very special way of celebrating the birth of your child and welcoming your new arrival into your family and the wider community. A Naming Ceremony is a unique occasion that allows everyone to feel involved as they pledge their love and support for your child’s future development.

It is an opportunity to declare, before family and friends, your promises to be as good a parent as you can, and for adult friends or relatives to confirm their special relationship with your child.

Your Naming Ceremony can be specially created using your own selection of words, poems and readings, either from the wide selection we provide or from other sources. During the ceremony, a special commemorative certificate is signed and presented.

As the child(ren) can be any age, a Naming Ceremony is also ideally suited to welcome and celebrate an adopted child into your family or to embrace stepchildren into a new family. A perfect way to bond a family unit.

There are many ways to make your child’s ceremony a very personal, meaningful and unique event for all those involved.
