BABY NAMING CEREMONIES
As an alternative to a religious birth ritual, some parents choose to celebrate their baby's arrival by holding a baby naming ceremony.
A baby naming ceremony involves:
Welcoming the child into the lives of family and friends.
Acknowledging those who will play a special role in your baby's life.
Facilitating any readings and speeches.
Any rituals, such as sand pouring, blessings or candle lighting.
Formally confirming the baby's name.
There are no compulsory features of a baby naming ceremony—it's up to you!
