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.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, naming ceremonies are not currently taking place. 

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
