Baby Welcomings, Namings, and Adoption Ceremonies

A Child Naming ceremony is an opportunity for the parents to introduce and welcome their baby or child to the circle of family, friends and community that will help to guide the child as they grow to maturity. By naming the baby in a formal ceremony, the parents are acknowledging that the community has a duty and responsibility to care for all of its members. And the circle of family and friends that represent the community acknowledge their wish to be involved. Best of all, a Child Naming ceremony is a joyous gathering that celebrates the life of the child and the life of the community with readings, music, pledges, gifts, good food, toasts and fun.
