A naming ceremony is special way of celebrating the arrival of a child or children and welcoming them into the family and the wider community. Naming ceremonies are non-religious and do not have any legal status. They are something that parents or guardians can choose to do as a personal and public gesture of love and commitment to their child. Unlike a birth certificate, the commemorative certificate issued is not a legal document.
A fully trained professional celebrant from Kirklees Council will carry out the naming ceremony. Any parent can make the arrangements, or anyone else who has parental responsibility or legal guardianship of the child. Parents do not have to be married. A naming ceremony is not just for babies, children of any age can have a naming ceremony. Older children can be included in the ceremony, as well as a new baby.
The venue, number of guests, involvement of other friends or relatives and ceremony content can be chosen to create a personalised event.
