Names are a vital part of how you define yourself. They’re one of the first words you learn to write and are used to identify you throughout your life from infancy all the way through to old age. Publicly celebrating your child’s name gives an opportunity to emphasise the thought and care that goes into this important choice, your investment in their life, and in turn the love you feel for them.
Naming ceremonies are a way to commemorate this key part of your child’s identity. As they aren’t a legal event, you can craft a celebration that’s bespoke to your child and their loved ones. The sky is the limit in creating an event that's personal and unique to you - please just bear in mind that the naming ceremonies we officiate cannot have religious content such as religious readings or music.
Whether you have a baby or an older child whose name you’d like to celebrate, naming ceremonies are a unique opportunity for significant figures in their life to publicly promise to support them. They’re not just for children, you could also have a naming ceremony for a beloved pet.
Here are five ways you can make your naming ceremony unique to your family.
