hey funky,
I don't know a lot about naming ceremony but I think they are normally conducted by a celebrant so best to book in advance for the date.

Hi Funky

I haven't done a birthday and naming day together but I have done two naming ceremonies for my children.

It is best to ring around and get prices and also book now especially if your son's birthday is in June.

Celebrants are the ones who do naming ceremonies. The lady that I had charged $200 that was september 2003.

Ring around and check prices and also see what you get for your money. We got the ceremony, certificates, 5 small certificates for granparents etc, certificates for the guardians etc.

Hope this helps.

Hey Funky,

I agree with girlymum, start to ring around now. I looked up the Celebrants in the local phone book when I had my son's naming day. The prices and certificates do tend to vary a little so get a few quotes.
Hope you have a great day. I had my sons when he was only 3 mths old but my girlfriend had the 1st b'day and naming day combined, they are wonderful fun. Let us know how you go!!
what is a naming ceremony what does it involve whats it for???

Hi Eilishsmummy,

A naming day is usually held for people who are not religious but want to give their children a god parent or guardian. It is similar to a christening only not religious.

You can make them as formal or as informal as you like and you can hold them wherever you like.

I have had two naming days to celebrate my childrens life and give them guardians. I have had one at my parents house and one at mine.

Hope this helps you.

name ceremonies are non religious way of welcoming a child into your family.

I was interested in having a naming ceremony for my daughter, but have no idea where to start if anyone has an advice id apreciate it! i live in melboure, but i dont know anyone who has had a ceremony like this so i have no-one to ask for advice of even if they know any celebrants to do this for us. i'd love anyone who has some ideas!!

thankx funky i will start to find some celebrants numbers and find out prices! will email after, let u know how i go...thanks again tho!

If you didn't want to have a celebrant but still follow the whole concept would be to have a trusted friend of the family or relative perform the ceremony for you.
It'll save the expense of the celebrant. It would be more personal and you could make up your own ceremony with readings, promises to the child etc.
If you've been to another naming day or know someone whose had one before you could modify the same ceremony to suit yours.
There's no end to what you could do to make the day exclusively yours.
