Naming Ceremonies

A Naming Ceremony is a celebration of life and family.

Your ceremony will include officially naming your child and declarations of promises from parents, family and friends. This type of ceremony can be held when your child is any age, it’s up to you. You may be welcoming an adopted child or step-children to the family who are taking the family surname.

Ideas of what your ceremony can include – however there are no rules!

  • Introduction and welcome
  • The importance and responsibilities of being a parent
  • Parents’ promises to the child
  • Declaration of supporting adults (Guide, God, Guardian parents)
  • Importance of the wider family unit (Siblings, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles)
  • The naming itself and the meaning of the name
  • Poems, readings and music
  • Closing words

Let’s create your ceremony – a day of memories to be made and with laughter too!
