Naming – Adoption



Adoption is another word for love – Remember Superman was adopted!

We’ve Adopted You

We didn’t give you the gift of life, but in our hearts we know

The love we feel is as deep and real as if it had been so.

For us to have each other is like a dream come true.

No – we didn’t give you the gift of life, life gave us the gift of you

Naming – Grandparents Promises



Grandparents bring wisdom, love and support to your family.  Ask them to make their own promises to your child

You inherited a thousand generations of wisdom, skill, poetry, song,

All the sunrises and sunsets of knowledge past.

You are the sum of all the people who went before you.

Naming – Write your wishes



Ask your guests to write wishes for your children on the paper bunting and, as part of the ceremony, string the bunting on the wall.  Keep them in a Memory Box for your children to read when they are older.

Naming – Parents promises



Parents can make solemn promises to care for their child as they grow up.  Write your heartfelt promises yourself to make the ceremony personal and extra special.

Naming – Special People



Supporting Adults, Guardians, Fairy Godparents bring so much to family life and can teach your children life skills.  Ask the special people in your life to make their own promises.

Naming – Family promises



It is important to include brothers and sisters in the Naming Ceremony.  They can read a poem and make promises.

The little girl who chatters away

The little girl who has lots to say

I give you my promise that I’ll always care

As your big brother I’ll always be there
