It is with pleasure that I help at Naming Ceremonies. It is rare in our traditions nowadays to acknowledge children, or give them rites of passage, so I really appreciate when parents choose to do so.
Some couples who have children when they marry include this in their wedding ceremony.
Others have special events for a child, often at a birthday, to welcome them into the family in front of friends and relatives. It gives the child recognition, and strengthens the family’s bond of commitment towards the child – for example grandparents and aunties may declare their lifelong support.
Here is one testimonial from a mother: Dear Andy, Thanks so much for the wonderful day! Your ideas, your words and your presence brought so much joy to Henri’s naming ceremony. What a perfect day! Lots of love! The Kennedy’s
