A memorable day for us all
A gathering of family and friends to celebrate and confirm a child’s name..
An alternative to the traditional christening or baptism for many parents today, is to have a gathering of family and friends to confirm their child’s name, it can be for a baby or child of any age and can include the introduction of ‘Godparents’.
This of course is a terminology that is not used so much now, so you may want to consider other titles such as sponsor, mentor, supporter or supporting adult. Guardian is also popular but has legal connotations.
Like civil marriages and vow renewals the venue you chose for this ceremony is entirely yours.
