Baby Blessings and Baby Naming Ceremonies

baby blessing

Welcoming a child into our lives and formally appointing godparents or guides, is a beautiful gift for that little boy or girl. The baby blessing or baby naming can be done at any time during the first year, on the first birthday, or later. 


An adopted child can also be welcomed into the family with a child or baby blessing ceremony, regardless of age.



Baby blessings and naming ceremonies create a sense of belonging for the child, and are rites of passage for the whole family. They can be informal, in your own home and need not be religious. Elaine has created many different baby naming ceremonies incorporating the beliefs and values of the parents.
