Naming and Welcoming Ceremonies have been held from the earliest of times to welcome the arrival of a new child. It is an occasion when a child is welcomed into the family and the community. It is an opportunity to celebrate your happiness with people who matter to you and to remind everyone of the great joy and responsibility in bringing up children. Naming and Welcoming Ceremonies may occur at any age or on special occasions other than at birth. Such ceremonies may be celebrated for adoption, for blended families or when there is a change of name. They may be included as part of a wedding ceremony and become a wonderful family celebration.
