{The Nest Celebrations} Naming Day

Traditional christenings are becoming less and less popular and there has been a surge of Naming Days that are taking their place. namin6

Naming days are usually non-religious but are a fantastic way to celebrate your new little person with your nearest and dearest.

Today, we speak with Amanda who chose to give her son Reid a Naming Day!

TCN: So, why a naming day and not a traditional Christening or Baptism?

My husband and I aren’t particularly religious but we still wanted Reid to have his own special ceremony and a day all about him so we chose to have a Naming Day instead!naming

TCN: How old is Reid?

Reid is One! We combined his first birthday party and naming day ceremony so we could have one big day to celebrate our little man.

TCN: Did you have a Naming Day for your other child as well?

Yes, Jayce our 2.5 year old also had a Naming Day on his first birthday as well. naming3

TCN: Did you use a Celebrant or just do it yourself?

We decided to go with a Celebrant. She was the same lady who completed Jayce’s Naming Day as well as our wedding! So it has been lovely that she has been a part of our lives in so many ways over the years!

TCN: Are their any local suppliers who made your Naming Day just that little bit more special?
