Baby Naming Ceremony

Baby Naming Ceremony

A baby-naming ceremony is an occasion where you celebrate baby’s birth with family and friends.

The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion and in welcoming and naming a child, we celebrate their birth as a human being.

Not only do you get the opportunity to announce the name you chose, but you can also explain its significance (if there is one). If baby was named after a loved one, a naming ceremony is a nice chance to reflect back on that person’s life, as well as be excited about your new addition’s future.

The ceremony itself can be religious if you want, but it doesn’t have to be. Your ceremony can be as simple as a small gathering.

What is a guideparent’s role in the naming ceremony?  As with traditional christenings, guideparents will offer love, guidance and support to the child as they develop and grow.
