A naming ceremony is a non-religious celebration of the arrival of a new child. It’s a way of welcoming your child into the world and officially introducing him or her to family and friends.
Naming ceremonies are appropriate for anyone, at any age. Not only for the arrival of a new baby, they can also be used to unite step or adopted children within a family or celebrate an adult name change.
Naming ceremonies involve the important people in the child’s life – family and special friends. Parents have the opportunity to ask other adults to play a supportive role to their child through to adult life as godparents, mentors or supporters.
Poems, readings, and quotes of personal significance can be used throughout the ceremony. Often a symbolic gesture is also made, such as the lighting of a candle or the planting of a tree. In addition, certificates are presented to parents and other special people as a record of the occasion.
