A Civil Naming Ceremony is the perfect way to celebrate the birth of your child in a non-religious ceremony and is a wonderful way to welcome your new arrival. You do not have to live on the Isles of Scilly to hold your ceremony here; this ceremony can take place in any venue of your choice with the prior agreement of the Superintendent Registrar
It is not just the birth of a child that can herald a celebration of a new addition to the family, many couples may have children from previous relationships - and what better way to make these children feel part of a new family than by celebrating with a ceremony. For anyone who adopts a child, a Civil Naming ceremony is a great way of welcoming that child into their lives and declaring a commitment to giving the child a loving home.
Any parent or legal guardian with parental responsibility for the child can make the arrangements. Parents do not need to be married and if you are having a Civil Marriage ceremony or a Civil Partnership Registration, a naming ceremony can be held immediately after.
