Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

~ Margaret Cousins

 

Name Givings
There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots; the other, wings.

~ Hodding Carter

Bestowing a name is a wonderous thing.

We all understand how important our names are and we attach much meaning from the names we give those we love, thus the ceremony that formally gives a child their name is an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge both the child and the name.

  • What is the origen of the name?
  • Is it special for some reason?
  • Are there connections to special people?
  • Is it linked to family heritage?

A Name Giving is also a time to appoint godparents/ guardians / mentors

  • who would you choose to support your child as a trusted friend; someone to come to other than Mum or Dad?
  • would you expect the guardians to take over parenting, should anything happen to you?

A Name Giving offers a chance to tell the story of how your child came into being and express gratitude for their arrival.

The telling of this story can become a tradition at each birthday and such traditions bring families closer as they share and reminisce.

Please contact me to discuss a Name Giving ceremony for your child.
