A Naming Ceremony is a very special way of celebrating the birth of your child or of welcoming an adopted or step child into the family, or a new family environment. It is also an opportunity to declare, before family and friends, your promise to be as good a parent as you can.
A Naming Ceremony is, in every sense, a unique occasion for everyone - family and friends - to feel involved and to offer their support in your child’s future development.
Children of any age can have a ceremony; it is not just for babies. If you wish, you could hold a Naming Ceremony immediately after your Civil Marriage or Partnership Ceremony. Ceremonies can also be used to celebrate adoptive children and step children becoming part of a new relationship and forming part of the family bonding within an extended family unit.
What information is required for the ceremony?
- We must see your child's birth certificate prior to the ceremony
The fees for the Naming Ceremony can be located on the Registration Fees page.
