Naming ceremonies

Celebrate a new arrival

A naming ceremony is not a legal ceremony, but it is a special way of celebrating a birth and welcoming the new arrival into the family.

It is also suitable to welcome a step-child or adopted child into the family.

The child can be of any age, and more than one child can be celebrated at the same ceremony.
