A Name Giving or Naming ceremony is a welcoming celebration for children no matter what age.
Whether your child is a newborn, a toddler or an older child or you have a number of children each of them can be made to feel very special and welcomed. Blended marriages where children from previous families come together under one roof can be welcomed into the new family through this ceremony. In Ancient Greek and Roman times a naming ceremony was held routinely for a new arrival in the family. This ceremony and celebrationis an ideal time to include appointing of mentors or god parents for a child or children and the inclusion of the community of family and friends.
You could even plant a tree in honor of a child if you wish. Give your child or children a special welcome into the world and into your family with a naming ceremony. It’s a very inclusive and heartfelt occasion.
You will be so glad you did!
