A Naming Ceremony is a fulfilling and meaningful experience for everyone involved. It is an occasion for the cultural expression of joy, hope and acceptance.

The ceremony welcomes the new baby into the world and shows the love, care and responsibility that the parents, family and friends have for the new baby.

Family relationships are deepened and the parents become more aware of their responsibilities, as do the Godparents (otherwise known as Guardians or Mentors) and Grandparents.
