Naming Day Fee $600
A Ceremony For Your Child/Baby
The name you give your baby is significant to them as an individual. Families come together to celebrate the life of this individual in the form of a ceremony, a Naming Day.These ceremonies are tailored to details the parents would like to highlight. Many people have significant people within the ceremony, which could be the grand parents or an aunt or uncle, who would be instrumental in the care of the child as they grow through life. Some people like to have special readings or prayers said over their child at this time also. The Naming Day will be a milestone in your child’s life and a celebration of his/her position within the family.

Ideas For Your Naming Day
A Time Capsule: You could ask all your guests to bring something of the era which would fit in the chosen capsule. (box, etc.) This collection of items is then preserved within the capsule and given to the child at 18 or 21. The items placed in there will be very relevant to them when they open it years later.
Plant a Tree. The significance of the beginning of a new life, can be seen throughout the seasons in the growth of a tree. Even the type of tree can have a connection to the child.
Light a Candle. Many parents will decorate a candle for the day, and have special poems read, or prayers uttered, or quotes stated, at a time of the ceremony where they light the candle. There becomes a beginning point, a definate change, a time to recognize the importance of the child within the family.
Video Footage. Some parents ask their family and friends to say a few sentences, or give some advice to the child through a video. This can also be shown to the child at their 18 or 21st, however it will be a lifelong record of important people in their life.
Signature Bear. Another beautiful keepsake for the child throughout the years could be a bear which has been marked with words of love and care from the family and friends around them. They are very cute and quite affordable. There are also signature frames available.
Doves, balloons, really the sky is the limit for ideas on what you can utilise for your child. The more personal the better. This child is a part of the family and the Naming Day Ceremony should reflect that family characteristic.
