The difference between Christening & Naming Days
Christenings involve family and friends to come together in the celebration of the Christian Faith. The parents will select two God parents, usually a God mother and a Godfather. There is no rule on who is chosen however traditionally it will be a member of family or close friends of the parents who are also Christians. During a traditional service, held by a local Priest in a church, the community will make promises on behalf of the child.
A naming day is often the alternative to the religious ceremony, christenings. Naming days are made to suit any religion or belief as they do not involve any religious content. Naming days can be held maybe due to the parents both being a different religion and therefore will not have to choose one religious ceremony to welcome the baby into the world.
In some ways however, naming days can be similar to christenings, in the sense that the parents still select two special adults to support the child. These adults are there to make promises, and be committed to the child.
However the main difference between naming days and christenings is that they are not held in churches by the Priest, they can be performed by a chosen relative or a close friend, and there are no rules. Naming day ceremonies are a lot more flexible, and all of the decisions are made by the parents, or the organizer.
No matter what celebration is used to introduce the baby into the new world, and to their new family members and friends, there are usually social gatherings afterwards at a different venue with everybody involved in the babies, and parents lives. These parties usually include showering the new arrival with gifts and presents, ranging from clothes, to toys and teddies, and special personalised gifts that are unique to the baby’s life.
