Baby Naming Ceremonies

Baby Naming Ceremonies

A Naming (or Name Giving) Ceremony offers a delightful way to officially welcome a child into your immediate family, and the wider circle of your relatives, friends and community.

The concept of a naming ceremony is an ancient one; in fact, most civilisations throughout history have utilised some form of ceremony to welcome each new child into the fold.

A Naming Ceremony can be conducted at any stage – some parents choose to have the ceremony while their baby is still only weeks or months old.

Another popular idea is to combine the Naming Ceremony with the child’s first birthday, or to have a single Naming Ceremony for all of your children at once.


For families with no particular religious affiliation, a Naming Ceremony is a lovely way to mark the arrival of a new child into the family as an alternative to a Christening or Baptism. Some parents opt for a Naming Ceremony for their baby, with the intention that the child be baptised at an older age, depending on their religious beliefs.

I would be delighted to hand-craft a naming ceremony especially to suit your family. Please feel free to contact me for a no-obligation appointment.
