Naming ceremonies provide the ideal opportunity to bring close ones together to welcome a child into a family/ community. Naming ceremonies can also help adopted children and step children feel welcomed into the family. It is a declaration of the parents' intentions of loving and rearing a child, together with the key people who will be involved in their lives.
These ceremonies are a great public declaration of love. Supporting adults, mentors, life roadies, fairy godmothers or godparents - many names for the special friends and relations chosen to help guide the child through life. These people can consolidate culture, heritage and traditions in any combination.
As there are no legal implications the sky is the limit for this celebration.
