The difference between Christening & Naming Days
Christenings involve welcoming (normally) an infant into the Christian faith in the presence of family and friends. It involves giving a name to the infant and the symbolic application of water to the head of the child. The parents will select God parents, usually a God mother and a God father. 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 a non religious ceremony to welcome the baby into the world. Naming celebrations are a lot more flexible, often less formal and are adapted to meet the wishes of the parents, for example the venue is not restricted to a Church and the promises made by chosen adults to support the child can be very personal.
No matter what celebration is used to introduce the baby into the new world or the christian faith there are usually social gatherings afterwards, often at a different venue with friends and family. 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.
