Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Naming ceremonies

Naming ceremonies have been designed as an opportunity to welcome a new baby, an adopted child or to embrace a stepchild into the family.

The ceremony is tailored to your wishes and is a formal and dignified occasion where parents, relatives and friends can pledge their support for the child’s future development. The ceremony has no legal status.

For further information on how to proceed and the costs involved, please contact your local register office.
