Naming Ceremonies, acknowledge and include promises of commitment, love, guidance and care from family and friends and your wider community.
A baby naming ceremony for a child can include brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunties and uncles and friends. The ceremony can also be made up with rituals, readings, songs or anything you want to include that symbolises and adds meaning to this special day. Celebrate with a casual family gathering or a more formal affair!
You may like to include: A Sand Ceremony, a Time Capsule, Candle Ceremony, Water Ceremony, Circle Ceremony. These are only some of the types ceremonies that can be included. There are many more. I have listed a few below. Or make your own.
All Naming Ceremonies I deliver come with a framed, signed Baby Naming Certificate, ( usually signed by godparents or significant family or friends as part of the ceremony) and as a keepsake to remember and recognise the Naming of your baby or child.
What do you do at a Naming Day? Aside from the main part of the day being the actual ceremony, you might incorporate it with a special breakfast, lunch or dinner.
There are no rules, a Naming Ceremony is held for the meaning, it gives to naming a child, this meaning maybe a christening or spiritual or welcoming, stating who you are and that you are here!
