Baby Naming Ceremonies

Baby Namings are an extremely important part of family tradition.

A child is named as a celebration of his or her birth and is usually surrounded by family and friends for the naming ceremony.

It's also an opportunity to declare before family and friends, your promises to be as good a parent as you can, and for adult friends or relatives to confirm their special relationship with your child as they pledge their love and support for your child's future development.

Baby Naming Ceremonies are usually non religious, but can reflect a diverse cross section of religious backgrounds if required.

Des Kelly, Marriage Celebrant, based in Lismore performs naming ceremonies in Byron Bay, Lismore, Gold Coast Australia and other North Coast areas. Des will craft a Naming Ceremony for your child in accordance with your wishes.

Special family traditions can be included in the naming ceremony or you may wish to have the baby naming at a location like a beach at Byron Bay or the Gold Coast Hinterland or any other special place on the North Coast.

Naming Ceremonies can be conducted, regardless of the age of the child, and may be for the welcoming of an adopted child or for embracing stepchildren into the family. A naming ceremony is an ideal way for everyone to enjoy a unique occasion where they can feel involved whilst supporting the family of the child celebrating their naming ceremony.

A naming ceremony is one of Des’ favourite functions of being a marriage celebrant.

Des has a huge array of ideas and rituals that can make your child’s naming ceremony a naming ceremony you will cherish for many years into the future.
