Naming Ceremony


The Naming Ceremony is a way to introduce a new baby into the family and community. For adults, it is a way, to educate your friends and family about your cultural identity and the desires seek to achieve with your name representing that hope. The Ceremony last from one and a half to two hours, depending on the type of ceremony you choose.


Names in African cultures are pointers to their users’ hopes, dreams and aspirations; they may reflect their users’ geographical environments, their fears, their religious beliefs, and their philosophy of life and death. Children’s names may even provide insights into important cultural or socio-political events at the time of their birth. The circumstances surrounding a child’s birth may be considered when a name is being chosen.

If you happen to be an adult and inherited a name not of your cultural origin, you might consider getting a name change which represents your true spiritual calling and cultural heritage. A name change can make a big difference in your life and your ability to achieve your incarnate objective.
