Naming Ceremonies

Congratulations to you and your family on welcoming this new child your family! Whether they are your precious first born, your long awaited adopted child or your new stepchild, a naming ceremony is the most wonderful occasion for any family. You can celebrate this new addition to your family with your friends and family in a way that is personal and reflective of your family’s values and beliefs.

Many modern families are looking for an alternative to the traditional Christening in Ireland, something special and personal and non traditional. A Naming Ceremony is the welcomed alternative. This ceremony can be held at home, in an outdoor space or in a private venue.  The child is formally introduced to the family and their arrival is celebrated with music and words and other enhancements such as candle ceremony, hand and foot printing, tree planting or a token warming ceremony. The family can choose to appoint Guide Parents or guardians and make their own promises to love and nurture their child in a safe and encouraging environment.

This is also a gorgeous way to celebrate your child if they choose to change their name later in life to something that embodies who they are now that they have discovered their own identity. A Naming Ceremony in this case is a beautiful celebration of their individuality and a show of the family’s support and acceptance of this change.
