The Name Giving Ceremony welcomes a new child into the world and encourages family and friends to gather together to share the special occasion and to pledge their love and commitment to the new child.
A Naming Ceremony is the perfect opportunity to declare your promises to your child in the presence of family and friends. It is also an opportunity to formally acknowledge siblings and other relatives and/or adult friends who will play an important part in your child’s life. You might like to have godparents or supporting adults involved allowing them to confirm their special relationship with your child by sharing promises in front of you and their guests.
I can tailor the Ceremony to suit your needs.
A typical Naming Ceremony might contain:
Introduction and Welcome
Promises (can be by parents, grandparents, godparents, supporting friends)
Presentation of gift/flower to special people
Formal Name Giving
Rituals (e.g. Lighting of Naming Candle, Sand Ceremony)
