Hi everyone!

A friend has asked me to make the invitations for their son's naming ceremony. I was wondering if anyone here has ever made any, or even been to a baby naming ceremony? The parents aren't really sure what they want or even what will happen on the day. I've been looking on the internet for inspiration and can only really find christening invites.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

My niece had a baby naming ceremony last year - it was really good.  Basically, the parents and 2 people they have choosen take vows to be there for the child during its life.  There is the short service, and usually a great get together afterwards!  It is really the same as a Christening, but without the religious aspect.
I don't know them, so can't really suggest what to design - how about using the baby's initial, or taking inspiration from the meaning of it's name?

Happy Making!

In the Unitarian universalist tradition we have child dedications. Part of it is honoring the child, part of it is also welcoming the child into a community and voicing the commitment of the community to the child and family.
PM me if you would like more info...

Thanks for the info, I really liked the idea of using the meaning behind the baby's name so I looked into that. His name is Ethan, which is from the old testament, i'm not sure if the parent's realise that since they're not religious. I think i'm gonna look for a nice verse which describes what the day is about, or just draw his name decoratively.

well the meaning appears to be strong, firm, constant, which doesn't have to be related to the fact Ethan was a wise man in the Bible.
