What is a Naming Ceremony?
Naming ceremonies are a special occasion for family and friends to get together and state publicly that it is the duty of all of us in the coming years, to present the child with a broad view of life. We also encourage them in the virtues that we all agree as valuable: honesty, integrity and compassion.
Name Days are not the same as Baptism or Christening. On Naming days, parents and family members and friends can have much more involvement in the ceremony. Parents state their love and commitment to the child as well as declare hopes for the child’s future. We specifically personalize and tailor-make these ceremonies to your child, naming them, nominating godparents/supporting adults or mentors, and talking about the role of the grandparents and the whole community in raising the child.
Why have a Naming Ceremony?
Naming ceremonies are a wonderful celebration first of all to express joy, hope and acceptance. And furthermore, the ceremonies are a wonderful time to officially welcome your child into a loving circle of family and friends.
