A Naming Ceremony is a very special way of celebrating your child’s birth and welcoming the new arrival into the family. It is also an opportunity to declare, before family and friends, your promise to be as good as parent as you can. It is an opportunity for you, as parents to choose friends or relatives, to play a supportive role throughout your child's life either as godparents, mentors, life guardians or supporters. A Naming Ceremony is, in every sense, a unique occasion for everyone to feel involved and to offer their support in your child’s future development.

Maybe you want to reaffirm your commitment to each other after a rough period in your relationship. There's no wrong reason to renew.
