Naming Days

What's in a Name ?


A naming ceremony is a non-religious celebration of the arrival of a new child. It is a way of welcoming your child into the world and officially introducing her/him to family and friends. Naming ceremonies are appropriate for anyone, at any age. The arrival of a new baby, uniting of step or adopted children within a family, or an adult name change are all great reasons to hold a naming ceremony.


Naming ceremonies usually involve important people in the child’s life such as close family members 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, you may wish to arrange for certificates to be presented to parents and other special people as a record of the occasion.


Naming ceremonies are not a baptism or christening. While the ceremonies are non-religious, many parents with religious beliefs hold naming ceremonies to welcome their child. Doing so does not prevent the child from holding or participating in a religious ceremony at any stage of their life.


While the Naming Ceremony and accompanying documents don’t have any legal status, they are a wonderful way to welcome your child and celebrate them as they begin their journey through life.​ Naming your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. It would be an honour and a privilege to help you create a ceremony that reflects the importance of this decision.
