Baby Naming Ceremony in 12 Easy Steps
Compile a Baby Naming Ceremony
a Naming Ceremony is not an official or legal ceremony, you, as the
parent, can use your imagination in planning it.
Some of the things you might like to consider is
1. Baby's Name.
Does it mean something special to you or your family? Have you named
your baby after someone you think a great deal of? Is the name based on
your own cultural roots and you want the baby to carry on your heritage?
Would you like to share that with those present?
2. Significant Relatives.
Is the baby lucky enough to have Grandparents, or
even Great Gandparents, Great Grand Uncles? What role have they played in your
life, and what role do you want them to play in the life of your baby?
3. Is yours an Adopted Baby?
Would you like to share some of your experiences while waiting for the
arrival of your baby. If you already have other children, do they want
to make a commitment to the new sibling? Is the child old enough to make
a commitment to the new family he or she has become a member of.
4. Parental Promises.
As parents, do you want to make a special promise to your child, or
share with everyone your feelings or hopes for your baby?

presenting the baby with a flower, a special toy, a drawing, a handmade
gift, or just say a public 'hello'.

Similarly with the Grandparent, or significant relatives.
Would they like to read a poem, or make special promises to the baby?

Whether you call them Godparents, Guideparents, Guardians, Sponsors,
Lifeguardians or Mentors, you might like to tell everyone why you have
chosen these particular people. What have they meant in your life, and
what do you expect of them as the special adult in your baby's life.
8. Guests and the Baby.
your guests by asking them as a group, or individually, to affirm their
support to you as parents, and their support as responsible for helping
to promote the welfare of the next generation.
9. Good Wishes for the Baby.
Encourage each guest to write a note of good wishes for the baby, or a
way in which the guest intents to share his or her talent and time with
your child as your baby grows.

Start a Scrap Book for your baby and ask each guest to write a message
in it. This might include a helpful hint, or a hope for the future, or a
poem. Something the child will enjoy reading once he or she is able to
