Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a version of a Baptism or a Christening without some of the religious elements.

For children, their parents, family and friends it is an important Right of Passage, to welcome a new child.

Naming ceremonies are very popular and can be held anywhere the family desires, usually at the family home or a favourite park or place of beauty.

They can also be held in recognition of the adoption of a child or to welcome stepchildren into a family. As there are no legal requirements children can be any age.

The ceremony also facilitates the appointing of godparents, guardians and mentors, to watch and guide your child through life.

The ceremony includes a certificate for the child, showing their name, date of birth, date and place of the ceremony and the names of the godparents, guardians or mentors.
