About naming ceremonies
A naming ceremony is a special way of celebrating the birth of your baby or a new arrival into the family.
There are many reasons to have a naming ceremony, such as:
- The ceremony provides an opportunity to formally announce the names chosen for your child and your reasons behind the choice.
- You can make promises before your family and friends of your commitment to support and nurture your child throughout their life.
- Your family and friends can also make promises of their special support and relationship to you or your child.
- As the child can be of any age, it's an ideal time to welcome and celebrate an adoptive child into the family or to embrace stepchildren into a new family.
