Naming Ceremonies

I will spend time getting to know your family so you can conduct a ceremony that is personal and meaningful.

 

Together with me, the parents discuss promises, readings, poems, rituals and music they might like.

During the ceremony, you, as the parents state your love and commitment to your child, acknowledge the role of family and friends, and declare hopes for your child’s future.

Ceremonies can be combined with symbolic actions that have meaning to your family, such as sand ceremonies, tree-planting, candle-lighting, or hand or foot-printing.

Celebrations may vary in length from 20 minutes to an all-day celebration.

Naming ceremonies are a really special moment for babies, toddlers, older children, adopted children and stepchildren.
