Baby Naming

A celebration of life…

Baby Naming Ceremonies

Welcoming a new baby to the World is one of life’s special moments. In recent years our team has seen a growth in baby naming ceremonies in Ireland. This is a personalised and beautiful way to formally introduce your baby to your family and friends and other important people in your child’s life. It is an occasion to welcome your child into your lives. A party to declare your love and wishes to and for your little one.


At Coastal Ceremonies, we provide a unique and unforgettable service where you can create and design a meaningful and customised ceremony in your venue of choice. By incorporating your own ideas, style, traditions and cultural practices, your baby naming ceremony can be a truly memorable occasion.

Get in touch with Coastal Ceremonies today to find out more information on our Baby Naming Ceremonies.

Celebrate your Baby’s Name

There are so many ways you can mark this special day and a professional family celebrant from Coastal Ceremonies, has the knowledge and expertise to bring your wishes and ideas to life. What makes a baby naming ceremony so unique is the input from the parents; from the choice of venue, to lyrics and music; from naming ceremony readings and poems, to ceremony enhancements. 


celebrants that officiate Baby Naming Ceremony in Ireland

In previous ceremonies, our celebrants have included;

  • personalised poems from a newly appointed Guide parent,
  • a sand ceremony, 
  • a song sung by the baby’s mother, 
  • a cousin reading a poem about family 


And through it all, the baby accompanying the ceremony with delighted whoops and cheers and giggles.


Declaring your Baby’s Name

We love describing the meaning behind each baby’s name, each as unique as the baby and each story behind the name evoking a shared memory. The description often brings a smile to the congregation as they remember a loved member of the family, or a favourite song writer or a name reflecting the couples heritage and culture.

As part of the ceremony, wishes and pledges may be declared aloud for the baby, or indeed written and decoratively pinned to a wishing tree. A time capsule may also be created, including some pictures of the baby, a naming ceremony certificate, a note from Dad or from a close family member, a tiny painted hand or foot prints or perhaps some newspaper clippings from the day the baby was born.


Naming Ceremonies are full of love and excitement. With no specific formula, they really can encompass whatever it is you wish. Older siblings can get involved and the whole family can create something unique and meaningful together.
