Naming ceremonies

We can offer naming ceremonies to families who wish to celebrate the birth of a new baby or to welcome adoptive or stepchildren to the family.

The ceremonies do not contain religious references. Parents wishing to have a religious ceremony should contact their local church or religious community. 

Staff will assist in designing a ceremony to suit the individual needs of the family. The format can include:

  • a welcoming of the child into the family 
  • an announcement of the chosen names 
  • promises of commitment and support for the child from parents and supporting adults 
  • music
  • a selection of poems or readings 
  • a special gift to the child 
  • signing of the commemorative certificate
