Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies can be performed for anyone at anytime, though they are mostly performed for babies to announce and introduce to family and friends the new arrival.

 

Some reasons for having a naming ceremony;

  • To welcome a baby into the family
  • To announce the name and meaning of the name
  • To make promises of nurture, support and education so the child can be independent and a useful member of society
  • To provide a non-religious alternative
